With the Folkadelphia Sessions, it has been quite thrilling to be able to share some of the recent in-studio performances that we have recorded with a diverse set of musicians. But it’s not like this is a new thing for us; Folkadelphia has been recording and airing our sessions via our weekly radio program (now on Singer-Songwriter Radio Sundays 3-5 PM and Mondays 9-11 PM) since our inception.

Every so often, we will dig into the vaults, dust off a few WAV files, and present to you a new (old) session that you may have missed hearing the first time around.

Today we give you a session that was recorded live on the air on September 25th, 2011 with Philadelphia multi-instrumentalist and man about town Jesse Sparhawk. He appeared on the Folkadelphia program to play a few of his guitar compositions and guest DJ. This month, Sparhawk makes two local appearances to be aware of. On May 10th, he performs a solo acoustic show (not unlike what you’ll hear in these recordings) at Fishtown’s Highwire Gallery with Trevor Healy and Travis Woodson; on May 22, he plays a trio show with two drummers at The Rotunda.
