Pumpkin Bread, a folk quintet based in Boston, MA, plays original acoustic music that blends influences from traditional folk songs and fiddle tunes with modern sensibilities and intricate arrangements.

Mary P & The Friendly Friends

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Folk, guitar, voice. Succulent, sweet, surprises. Bubbles, hula hoops, chalk.
Also, a jazzy set with a twist of lemon.
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 I know it? I'll play it.
*Also, though not specifically geared towards kids, people of all ages tend to listen joyfully. I think you'll like it.
*Many Friendly Friends are out of town. It might just be Mary P. I still think you'll have fun.
