The Folkadelphia Concert Series—co-presented by the Philadelphia Folksong Society and WXPN—will celebrate its inaugural show on Sunday, February 6th, at Johnny Brenda’s and feature performances by local favorites The Spinning Leaves and Hezekiah Jones. The concert series is organized by WXPN’s own Fred Knittel, who—in addition to co-founding the vinyl-centric local label Be Frank Records—hosts the weekly folk-music show Folkadelphia on Y Rock every Tuesday night from 6-8 p.m. The other shows in the three-concert series will feature Lewis & Clarke (Sunday, Feb. 20) and Meg Baird + Arborea (Sunday, Feb. 27). Each concert will include a discussion with the performing artists at the venue that afternoon; the artists will then appear on The Folk Show with Gene Shay (8-11 p.m. Sundays) later that night.
