Trad Girl Summer

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Feeling less lucky than usual? Sad to have missed two years of St. Patrick's Day? That all ends here with Trad Girl Summer, a group of traditional Irish musicians who are ready to bring the sounds of your local pub to Porchfest. TGS is a today-only group of fiddlers, bagpipers, flute players, concertina players, and whomever else shows up that day. We'll slash through some reels and jigs and hornpipes and maybe a barndance (by audience request.) Grab a pint, pull up a chair, and tap your foot to some rollicking tunes.

If you google “the greatest band in the history of recorded music”, Jim's Big Ego is still the top hit. Former-villen Jim Infantino (lead vocals & guitar) finally plays Porchfest, accompanied by Jesse Flack (bass), Dan Cantor (percussion), and Josh Kantor (keyboards). Two ~50 minute sets with an intermission. “Kid safe but not kid oriented”.

Mary P. & the Friendly Friends

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Folk, guitar, voice, harmonies. Succulent, sweet, surprises. Bubbles, hula hoops, chalk.
Also, a jazzy set with a twist of lemon. Maybe even a fiddle this year!
Also, sometimes an 80's sing-a-long song on ukulele thrown in, because we're grown ups and we can do what we want.

Want to hear something? If you request it and we know it? We'll play it.
*Also, though not specifically geared towards kids, people of all ages tend to listen joyfully. We think you'll like it!
