Philadelphia Folk Fest – Friday 8/14 12pm

Catch us at the Philadelphia Folk Festival this Friday, 8/14/15!

Camp Stage
12pm – 2pm

We are sharing the stage with our friends Psych-A-Billy and more! Our songs, their songs, old songs, new songs, cover songs, songs together!

Here’s a pic of us from our CD signing at the 2014 Philadelphia Folk Fest!

A quick note from Galen:

Boy howdy, did we ever get some equipment upgrades. I don’t have time to do big writeups right now, because we’re headed out to The Philadelphia Folk Festival tomorrow, but we’ve got mixers, we’ve got in-ear monitors, hell, we’ve got a new drum kit. We might even have a van. I can’t wait to tell you all about our new inventory.

We will also be joined by Equality Pennsylvania!
Equality PA is building support for the Pennsylvania Fairness Act, a bill that (if passed) would finally protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in the work place! As it stands PA is one of 29 states in which you can still legally be fired based on your sexual orientation, and is one of 32 states in which you can still legally be fired based on gender identity. The Pennsylvania Fairness Act would put an end to this discrimination.

Friday June 19, 10pm
