Sunday House Concert-Spinning Leaves and Lost Leaders

This Sunday March 6th we are hosting a house concert with two wonderful folk duos-the Spinning Leaves and their friends from New York the Lost Leaders. The concert will start at 8PM and will be proceeded by a potluck dinner at 6PM.

Space is limited--in order to reserve a spot please email

I could go on and on about the amazing talent and magic embodied in the Spinning Leaves (Michael Baker and Barbara Gettes) and the wonderful group of musicians with whom they collaborate. Instead, I encourage you to read two past postings I have written about these artists and the entity known as the Philadelphia Folk Parade. I am new to the Lost Leaders, but totally trust Michael and Barbara, when they say our community is going to love them.

The Spinning Leaves are in the middle of a kickstarter campaign to procure the funding necessary to record their next batch of songs. If you watch the video below you will get a sense of the community spirit that follows this duo where ever they perform (I apologize about the video not "fitting" into the blogger template correctly--if you click on blue "spinning leaves are making a record" type, you can view the video as it was meant to be seen). If you can make it to the concert you are in for a treat.

Below are two posts I have written about shows that have involved the collaborative and performance magic of the Spinning Leaves:

-Fermentation Festival Concert

-Mugs and Music: Community Connections

Once again, if you would like to attend the show on Sunday please email at Thank you!
