The 53rd Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival

The 53rd Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival

The 53rd Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival kicks into high gear today, and will sustain itself on a premium blend of high-quality tunes and positive vibes throughout the weekend. This year’s lineup, once again, provides a mixture of locally cultivated talent while also displaying touring acts. For those looking for a taste of local flavor, a wide assortment is at your disposal including: Kwesi K, Mutlu, Katie Frank & The Pheromones, The Wallace Brothers, and many more. Friday afternoon’s Philadelphia Music Co-Op Showcase features the likes of Vulcans, Kalob Griffin Band, and Black Horse Motel, among others, offering a solid sampling of our continuously growing folk/roots community. Reverend TJ McGlinchey will be holding a ukulele workshop were fellow Lover’s League member Dani Mari may be singing along. All this with a solid musical dose that also includes the soulful blues explosion of Shemekia Copeland, the funky get-down groove-making Rebirth Brass Band, and the legendary Loudon Wainwright III, buzzing Sturgill Simpson, and Deli faves The Lone Bellow, and Old Crow Medicine Show, just to name a few.
