Vinegar Creek Constituency and Spuyten Duyvil are two bands rising rapidly through the east coast Americana music scene. On March 21st, they bring tightly crafted songs, stellar musicianship and roots music mayhem to Steel City Coffeehouse in Phoenixville, PA. 
With Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE-vil"), every performance is a barn-burning romp through the last 100 years of American Roots music. "They are the hottest new band in folk music ... and one of the best", says legendary WXPN Folk DJ, Gene Shay. The band's return to Pennsylvania follows on the heels of a 2013 season that included stops at The Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Levitt Pavilion's Steel Stacks and CD release shows at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall and the Ardmore Music Hall in Philadelphia.

Since it’s release to radio in September, Spuyten Duyvil's most current CD  “Temptation” has received airplay on over 60 stations in 5 countries rapidly reaching the #2 song and #7 album spots on the International Folk DJ Chart and a Top 20 position on the Roots Music Report's Folk Airplay Chart and a Top 30 position on The Roots 66 Airplay Chart. Spuyten Duyvil’s previous release, “New Amsterdam” (2011) received a “Top American Roots Album 2011” nomination from The Alternate Root TV and placement on a dozen radio DJ “Top Ten” lists.

Vinegar Creek Constituency, an eclectic, incendiary string band out of the PA Dutch Country, channels the venerable old ghosts of the American folk tradition through imaginative, emotive original songs delivered with rock n roll intensity. Their live performances are uplifting, high-energy events with fans dancing in the aisles and clapping, stomping, and singing along. In May of 2008 VCC traveled to Cumberland, MD performing in and winning the first annual Delfest band competition, an event that became a catalyst for the band's already-growing creative energy.  "Don't Go Back In Time", the band's 3rd full-length, all-original studio album, was released in January 2013 and entered the Top 40 in the Folk Radio Airplay chart in October of that year.

"To see them play their high-energy live shows is to witness that special moment where all good acts with genre- monkeys on their back get down to the real business of making, not categorizing, music. It’s enough to make even the most jaded music critic forget all about the nerdy business of classification altogether."  Matt Johnson, Fly Magazine
