About the Artist:
THE PINKERTON RAID
The Pinkerton Raid’s songwriter Jesse James DeConto hails from New England, with dad’s guitar and mom’s radio tuned to Soulsville, Liverpool and Laurel Canyon, now mining foothills-folk in Durham, N.C., for songs AmericanaUK calls “anthemic.” Critics hear influences from Sufjan
to Wilco. “Radiant,” said American Songwriter. “Poignant,” said Rolling Stone.
The band has played with Illiterate Light, Ballroom Thieves and Noah Gundersen. They’ve slotted at Daytrotter, Shakori Hills, Albino Skunk Music Festival. Glide said their newest singles “purr with the garage-rock swagger of The White Stripes and the irritated kick of Cage the Elephant.

Due to the constantly changing reality surrounding the global health crisis of COVID-19, the FIRST priority of the Society is the health and well-being of our community. After raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for artists through our Digital Concert Venue, we are thrilled to welcome you back to our Roxborough Venue, 6156 Ridge Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19128 while still offering streaming options when available!

All persons entering the Philadelphia Folksong Society at 6156 Ridge Ave. Philadelphia, PA 19128 must provide proof of vaccination or negative PCR test within 72 hours. Inability to adhere to these protocols will lead to a warning then a removal without refund. PFS’ COVID protocols will be reviewed at each board meeting as the pandemic continues.

PFS is excited to re-open our Philadelphia Folksong Society Music Venue! Please join us in welcoming these incredible acts to #KeeptheMusicPlaying
