Seeing a Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced “SPITE-en DIE+vul”) show for the first time is like “throwing a cherry bomb into a lake” (Rich Warren, WFMT). It wakes you up. Their brand of original and traditional American Roots music blends Olde Time, Blues, 2nd Line, Bluegrass, and Folk Rock with a pinch of Punk Rock energy to create a uniquely modern mix. Lead by song-writing couple, Mark Miller and Beth Kaufman, this Midnight Special folk favorite brings barn burning energy to venues throughout the East Coast and Midwest. Drop them on a large festival stage and they electrify the crowd. Place them in a listening room and their stripped down acoustic sets connect powerfully.

Nominated for Best Folk Album 2015 by the International Folk Alliance, "The Social Music Hour Volume 1"

Rounding out the band's seasonal set list is a fresh flight of re-imagined traditional songs and their new International Folk DJ Top 20 original "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 from the band's website. 

“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

About the venues:
Music has a way of bringing people together and folk music speaks to the human experience in a distinct way. St. Tim's Coffeehouse hosts various, well-known folk artists in a newly renovated sanctuary.  Last year the series received a grant from the Skokie Fine Arts Commission.  Proceeds from the admission go towards paying the musicians and feeding the hungry through St. Timothy's sack lunch and garden ministries. St Tim's offers six folk music concerts each season.
