Performance Schedule for Go West Craft Fest, 9/7/13
We are SO looking forward to this Saturday's Go West Craft Fest at the Woodlands! The weather forecast couldn't look nicer, and we've got an amazing group of crafters, food vendors and activities for kids. There are also a bunch of local performers throughout the day, starting with:
Located at 4614 Baltimore Avenue, The Green Tambourine offers musical instruction and exploration classes for children and adults. Festival-goers of all ages can take part in interactive musical numbers, hear "recitals" by some current students, and enjoy solo performances by director Ann Schwartz.
"The music of West Philly’s Loren Gildar is natural, earthy and goes straight to the heart. His sweetly mellow voice and straightforward lyrics walk into your soul like an old friend walks into your living room. This insightful songwriter's bluesy, melodic chord progressions stir feelings of nostalgia, hope, friendship and love."
Chenda and Liana will play traditional, old-timey, Cajun-flavored bluegrass with magical vocal harmonies.
During the 3 o'clock hour, we will feature "feats of physicality" by three different performers: hoop dancers Nicolle Barrett and Caitlin Donaghy (the video shows Caitlin's performance at the Spring craft fest) and juggler Brien Eckenrode, another Go West veteran.
