Following the December update of a new album from nineties roots rock outfit Marah, the band has announced that they will perform Mountain Minstrelsy of Pennsylvania at Yards Brewing Co on February 16th.  Presented by Philadelphia Folksong Society, the event will allow Marah to perform the new album with a full band ahead of its February 25th release.

Mountain Minstrelsy of Pennsylvania was inspired by a book of the same name that held “a collection of songs lyrics gathered in the mountains of Pennsylvania by Henry Shoemaker, a folklorist and “song catcher.”  Marah’s David Bielanko and Christine Smith reworked the music and lyrics and recorded the album in Millheim, PA.  Tickets and information for the night of “long lost Pennsylvania folk songs, waltzes, rafting chants and mountain ballads” will be available here.
