Four bands, over 15 singers, holiday tunes, desserts galore, and it all benefits WYEP’s education programs. We’re honored to be part of it.

What exactly is our part, you ask? We’re playing a handful of holiday tunes (PHSB-style) with these talented singers: Mark Dignam, Liam Cooney of Horse or Cycle, Mike McCormick of City Dwelling Nature Seekers, Emily Pinkerton, and Brooke Annibale. Tickets will go fast, so get them now!

A Night of Old-time Music (7/30)

Posted in Uncategorized on July 19, 2011 by Chad Hunter


Hey, this is going to be fun. One night, three old-time acts, and an old bar in Lawrenceville. It’s about time we played a show with Pittsburgh’s Lost in the Holler. And we’re also interested in seeing The Old Fashioneds, the three-women driven old-time band from West Philly. Sound fun? See you there.

Yes! See you there? At the Polish Hill Arts Festival, I mean? It’s a funky little festival in the heart of one of the most unique neighborhoods in Pittsburgh, and we’re really glad to be performing at it. Did I mention that the Coal Country Cloggers will be there to kick up their heels with us? It’s bound to be a blast. We’ll be on the lookout for you.
