Wayne’s newest hot spot 118 North will be rockin’ Saturday, February 9 when two of Philly Folk Fest’s hardest-hitting bands – Meghan Cary With Analog Gypsies and Scott Wolfson & Other Heroes – head to the Main Line for this one-night-only performance.
Nationally-acclaimed recording artist Cary will be marking her 118 North debut by performing for the first time this year with her full band, which features Peter Farrell (keys and vocals), Bob Beach (harmonica, flute and vocals), Stacy Weathers (banjo,) Jocko MacNelly (bass), and Jimmy Coleman (drums).
The singer-songwriter is currently supporting her latest album Sing Louder, which debuted among the top 10 on the Folk Charts and is being played at mainstream radio in more than 40 markets throughout the country and in Canada.
One of her biggest supporters is radio host John Platt from WFVU 90.7 FM. He says, “These times require songs of compassion and commitment and Meghan Cary has several, especially 'Sing Louder' and ‘Responsibility’, which inspire us to reach for our higher selves. And Meghan sings them with such infectious joy you can’t resist joining in."
Cary, whose debut album earned her Billboard magazine’s “Critic’s Choice Award” for “Best Newcomer,” is one of the folk industry’s most sought-after artists. Her raw honesty and ability to connect with her audience through high-energy tunes, masterful storytelling, and deeply personal lyrics has captivated fans for more than two decades. Now, with the recent release of her latest album, Sing Louder, she has inspired others to raise their voices with her to create an authentic connection through music.
Scott Wolfson & Other Heroes has also earned rave reviews, accolades and airplay throughout the Northeast over the past six years and two albums. Described as “welding folk, blues, country, Broadway, and rock’n’ roll into a smart, rootsy, compelling sound,” the band has been lighting up stages with their high-energy brand of multifaceted Americana music since 2011.
Their latest record Welcoming The Flood, was released in 2016 and was hailed as “a tight, fast musical tapestry” by No Depression.
118 North is located at 118 N. Ave. Wayne, PA. Tickets to the show are $10 in advance and $12 at the door (although advance tickets are highly encouraged). To purchase tickets, visit https://www.118northwayne.com
