Philadelphia singer-songwriter Ginger Coyle will be singing God Bless America at the 7th inning stretch of the Phillies game today at Citizens Bank Park. The soulful, folksy pop singer released her first album of original songs, Homeward Bound, about a year ago, but she’s been in the music industry for over a decade.
And while baseball is the American past time, Folk is basically a Philly past time. Luckily for those of us who don’t understand baseball, Coyle is also performing a show at the Philly Folk Fest on June 17th on the XPN Philly Local Stage. She will be a part of XPN’s Local Showcase at the Camp Stage, from 11am-3pm.
Coyle is currently working on a Kickstarter campaign to fund her first full-length album. Check out her tune “Moon and Back” below.

WXPN’s Twelve Days of Local Christmas continues (and actually ends) today with our 12th and final song in the series called “It Feels Like Christmas” by singer-songwriter Ginger Coyle. Coyle, originally from South Jersey, released her most recent collection of songs called Homeward Bound last May. She has several upcoming shows including one tomorrow night at the Library 2 in Voorhees, New Jersey and a show at World Cafe Live on January 17th. The 12 Days of Local Christmas compilation is curated by XPN mid-day host Helen Leicht and the songs will be played daily during My Morning Download on the Morning Show with Michaela Majoun and on Helen’s local pick of the day. You can download the entire Twelve Days of Local Christmas compilation here.
