Folk musician performs outdoor concert at St. Philip’s

Posted

Folk musician David Brahinsky and friends will perform a concert with the songs of John Prine, Chris Smithers, Doc Watson, Cheryl Wheeler, Tom Waits, Kate Wolf, Sweet Honey and the Rock at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, 10 Chapel Road, New Hope (Solebury Township), at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24.
Brahinsky is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist who has been playing music from the folk tradition, from the Child Ballads to Bob Dylan, for over 30 years. One of the founders of the Roosevelt Arts Project, he has been the lead singer for The Roosevelt String Band for the last 25 years.
He plays in solo concerts throughout New Jersey, New York, and Vermont, but more often with a talented set of folk musicians and vocalists, “David Brahinsky and Friends.”
When he is not singing, Brahinsky teaches Comparative Religion and Philosophy at Bucks County Community College.

The vision of the program is to create space where music can create a community open to all regardless of income. “New Hope is a community known for the arts and in a small way, we hope to build community through the arts,” said the Rev. Michael Ruk, priest of St. Philip’s Church.
The concert is open to all with a free-will donation at the door for the musicians and the outreach of St. Philip’s Church. COVID protocols will be followed and in case of inclement weather the concert will be indoors.
