Want to get a sonic taste of the 51st annual Philadelphia Folk Festival happening in Upper Salford township? The final Sunday night concert is streaming right now (4 to 9:30 p.m.) and right here on the internet.
While poorly promoted, all three evenig PFF shows have actually been put out there for the world to hear this weekend, for the very firest time, by the locally based iradiophilly.com. Gizmo Guy only learned about it when Little Feat did a shout out to the world wide web audioence last night from the main Martin Guitar stage.
On tap today - The Great Groove Band, Tracy Grammer, bluegrass legends Red Clay Ramblers, cool Canadian export City and Colour, the old timey Secret Sisters, The HillBenders and the romping stomping jazz 'n funk flavored Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue to close the night and fest.
iradiophillly.com hopes you'll enjoy and come back for more, including 19 full time streams programmed "by Philadelphians "(Havertown's Kelly Music Research) "for Philadelphians." The dedicated channels range from "Bandstand" (1950s and '60s) to Indie Rock and Adult Alternative, BYO (local Artists,) Symphony, Martini Lounge (Sinatra, et al) and Jamz (Hip Hop & R&B.)
