Shady Shakedown

October 17, 2020 @ 8:00 pm

A special fall micro-festival in Arden’s Shady Grove, behind Gild Hall (with a new lighting design by George Brocklesby, our producer). The foliage will be turning, and the beer will be flowing, and the music will be playing! Masks will be worn at all times except when in your”pod” with your group. Social distancing and frequent hand sanitizing required. Capacity is limited to 200 people in the 1000 capacity Grove.

St. James and the Apostles

Voted Best Local Band by Philadelphia Magazine in 2019, these self-described “soul-stirring psychonauts” blends psychedelia and hard rock with an irreverent dose of Southern gospel inspiration. St. James & The Apostles is a family affair. The original trio are all cousins; James Mahon on guitar, Mike Kiker on organ and Jeff Castner on drums, and after hitting their 10-year anniversary in 2020, expanded the lineup to a 5-piece with lifelong friends Mark Candidi on bass and Jill Snarberg on vocals/percussion. No matter who’s in the band, you can expect an exciting and dynamic live show.

Brother Starling

An Americana rock band from Philadelphia. The band includes Geremiah Giampa (vocals / guitar), Brian Fin (bass / vocals), Tom Mellon (drums / vocals), Mike Rusch (guitar / vocals) and Joe Ryan (guitar / keyboards / vocals).

Brad Newsom Band

Features songs by this longstanding friend of Arden (who is also part of Lyric Drive and many other bands, the band from our Virtual Arden Fair this year). Brad describes the band as “Blues, Rock, Music for the Soul.”

Sharon Bousqet

A performing songwriter with an introspective poet’s flair, the primary teacher of a self-expression and singing class called The Singing Body.
