With the Folkadelphia Sessions, it has been quite thrilling to be able to share some of our recent in-studio performances that we have recorded with artists like Tim Kasher, Sera Cahoone, Anais Mitchell, and a ton of others . 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 on XPN2, Sundays 3-5 PM and Mondays 9-11 PM) since our inception.
Every once in a while, we like to dust off our hard drives and revisit some gems from sessions past. We’re of the generous sort, so here we are sharing them with you; welcome to Folkadelphia’s From the Archives. Enjoy this new (old) session!
During the summer of last year, NY-based Spirit Family Reunionbrought their infectious brand of hoot-and-hollerin’ Americana to the XPN Studio for Folkadelphia. Now they return to Philadelphia for a headlining concert at Johnny Brenda’s this tonight, 4/2. Let’s shake off the frigidity of the cold weather months and enter springtime with this energetic set and show!
Dance happy New York band Spirit Family Reunion will be playing at Johnny Brenda’s tonight. The folk group embeds their songs with an unbelievable level of soul, provoking the listener to clap along and stomp until their feet are sore. Their last release, a single combined with a song book simply titled Songbook + 7″, came out in August of last year. Recently, the band recorded a Daytrotter session, and a Folkadelphia session – which we’ll share later on today. The live recordings are a testament to the band’s name as it encompasses the spirit they imbue their songs with, and the life they put into their music. Tickets and information for tonight’s all-ages show with The Get Real Gang and Rosu Lup can be found here. Below, check out Spirit Family Reunion playing NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert.
