Make Music Philly Spotlight: Heyward Howkins

Heyward

This Friday, hundreds of events will occur all over the city for Make Music Philly, with countless artists from the area and countless genres represented – how do you figure out who to see?  That’s where we come into the picture.  To help you narrow down your choices, we’ll be bringing you Make Music Philly spotlights all week.

One artist you should not miss this Friday is Heyward Howkins.  A folk singer from Philadelphia, Heyward Howkins released his incredible debut LP Hale & Hearty last summer and is already preparing a follow-up.  With quirky yet catchy rhythms and songs that make lyrical references to the greater Philadelphia area, Howkins makes music like no other.  If you’re looking for an original artist and beautiful music, check out Heyward Howkins at Ortlieb’s Longue this Friday at 6 p.m.
