On Thursday May 18TH, acclaimed Philly Folk Festival favorites Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE-vul") bring their infectious, original spin on American roots music and alternative folk rock to Lansdowne PA.  In 2016, their CD, "The Social Music Hour Vol. 1", received an International Folk Music Awards' "Album Of The Year" Nomination.  They kick off their 2017 season with a fresh round of re-imagined traditional songs and their new International Folk DJ Top 20 single "The Warmth Of Other Suns".  Borrowing novelist Richard Wright's phrase and paying homage to Isabel Wilkerson's (http://isabelwilkerson.com/) thought provoking, timely and moving book of the same name, this inspiring song of resistance is available as a free download. 

“This is as close to a musical "Come to Jesus" moment as you'll get outside the gospel roots of the deep south. Yonkers, NY based Spuyten Duyvil are the real deal when it comes to roots revivalist Americana music. Historians, outstanding songwriters, accomplished musicians and a musical family atmosphere converge to make some of the most outstanding music around today.”  - The Alternate Root TV

The Lansdowne Folk Club has been bringing community together for the best in folk, acoustic and blues music since 1993.  In March of that year a small all volunteer folk music club opened its doors and began presenting shows for Lansdowne and the surrounding communities.  Initially focused on local and regional talent, they quickly found themselves presenting both national and international performers,  Acts such as Dave Van Ronk, The Kennedys, Susan Werner, Walter Hyatt, The Waybacks, John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee, Ben Arnold and Jim Boggia have played the club.   The founders never envisioned the club would make it past the first year, but now, twenty years later the Lansdowne Folk Club has become a stalwart in the folk music scene.  All concerts take place in the recently renovated ballroom of Lansdowne's "Twentieth Century Club" a Victorian-era jewel.
