Songside Concerts presents a Song Circle featuring 4 of the region’s top acoustic artists. With all musicians together on stage, each will perform solo, passing the song in a circle after each tune. We look forward to building collaborations and a finale with all performing together.

Hailing from York, Pennsylvania, contemporary singer/songwriter Michael Arthur’s poignant songs explore the breadth and depth of the human experience. Accompanying himself on solo acoustic guitar, Michael employs tasteful open guitar tunings as the canvas for his powerful and emotive vocal style.

After living and performing in the state of Texas for the past 12 years, singer/songwriter Patti Sullivan recently moved back to her native hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. Patti writes heart-felt songs about her life and the people and places that are part of it. Her beautiful voice is accompanied by her varied styles of guitar playing from finger-pick folk to driving blues rhythms to standard jazz tunes. Patti Sullivan

Hummelstown, Pennsylvania native Hank Imhof keeps a full schedule performing in the region these days. His distinctive bluesy voice is accompanied by his resonator style of blues. His performances include tunes from traditional blues greats to his own progressive original compositions. If you’re a fan of the blues, Hank is the performer for you. Hank Imhof

John Smith grew up in a musical household with parents who played and gave him an appreciation and love for bluegrass and folk music. Those influences shine through in his music today. Originally from Columbia, MD, John now lives in Glen Rock, PA. He writes songs about the towns, people and communities in which he’s lived. John is the lead singer and front man for the well know folk-rock band, 3 Dollar Suit. John’s fantastic voice is supported by his strong guitar and ukulele playing.

You’ve probably seen at least some of these performers before but never together. This is a special concert and one-time event. Please support folk music in our community and these fantastic regional performers.

Tickets $10 plus $1.50 processing fee in advance ($12 at the door)
