Oxford Friends Meeting
The Friends Folk Club is proud to announce a performance by the band Mason Porter on Friday, November 3rd at 7:30PM.
Mason Porter got its start in late 2006 informally as friends playing folk songs together at parties in West Chester, PA. The band released their debut EP Mason Porter (2008), resulting in immediate praise. Les McIntyre of Bluegrass Unlimited wrote of this inaugural recording,
“The music of Mason Porter could be best described as alternative bluegrass…in this debut recording, the eclectic trio show musical prowess that is difficult to overlook.”
Following up with full length CDs Thunder In The Valley (2009) and a collection of traditional folk and covers, Story Of the Rifle (2011), Key to the Skyway (June 2015), is their best effort yet.
The band became a fixture on the regional scene. Through the process of writing, recording and constant gigging, the band developed its original sound blending folk, bluegrass, blues, country and rock influences into the unique personality that is Mason Porter.
The band consists of founding members Joe D’Amico (mandolin, guitar, vocals), Tim Celfo (upright bass, vocals), Paul Wilkinson (guitar, vocals) and is typically augmented with drums and other instrumentalist at live shows. The current lineup includes Evan Smoker (drums) and Sarah Larsen (violin).
Come witness this wonderful performance on Friday, November 3rd at the Oxford Friends Meeting 260 S. 3rd St. Oxford, PA. Doors open at 7:00pm and starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15. Children 12 and under are free. Refreshments are available at a reasonable price.
The Oxford Friends Meeting is a century old Quaker Meetinghouse with great acoustics, no bad seats, and that “spiritual vibe” only a historic space provides. Come visit the best (and loved) little concert series in Southern Chester County for over 20 years.
The Friends Folk Club is an all volunteer-community run concert series.
