Philadelphia Folksong Society & The Bluegrass Situation PRESENT: Great Grass Weekend

Date/Time

Description

The Philadelphia Folksong Society is thrilled to team up with The Bluegrass Situation to present our very first “GREAT GRASS WEEKEND,” featuring an exciting  lineup of three bluegrass acts over one weekend in December. The Great Grass Weekend begins with Molsky's Mountain Drifters, on Thursday, Dec 5, at 8pm;  Hank, Pattie & the Current, take the stage Saturday, Dec 7, at 8pm; and on Sunday, Dec 8, catch Barnes, Gordy, Walsh Trio show, which begins at 7:30pm. PFS and BGS are offering hard to resist pricing for all three shows. 

The three bluegrass acts PFS and BGS are presenting are top notch. The first show, Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, a Grammy-nominated trio, consisting of Bruce Molsky, “one of America’s premier fiddling talents” (Mother Jones); Allison de Groot, one of Canada's top clawhammer banjo players; and Boston-based Stash Wyslouch, one of bluegrass’ great young genre-bending pioneers. On Saturday night, bluegrass ambassadors Hank Smith and Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw are backed by an all-star band comprised of North Carolina musicians Jonah Freedman on bass and vocals, Billie Feather on guitar, and Robert Thornhill on mandolin and vocals - together they are Hank, Pattie & The Current. The third act, Sunday evening, is a trio of musicians who have vibrant solo careers, as well as multifaceted musical collaborations under their belts, Joe K. Walsh, Grant Gordy, and Danny Barnes are the Barnes, Gordy, Walsh Trio.

Join us for these three incredible bluegrass concerts honoring the genre's past, celebrating its present, and embracing its future with the Philadelphia Folksong Society and the Bluegrass Situation. Attend all three concerts or pick two for our first-ever GREAT GRASS WEEKEND!
