Headlining our May concert was Philly’s favorite bluegrass band, Man About a Horse. This 5-piece bluegrass band brandishes strong ties to the folk music tradition, with a progressive streak that informs their original songwriting. Bridging generational boundaries, Man About a Horse is equally at home picking in concert parking lots and performing on stage at some of the nation’s finest bluegrass festivals. They released a studio recording in 2015 (“The EP”) that earned national airplay. The band opened the main stage of the 2015 Philadelphia Folk Festival, and has shared bills with the likes of Donna the Buffalo, Steve ‘N’ Seagulls, Wood & Wire, and others at renowned venues around the East Coast. Their music has been featured on blogs such as The Key, the Random Tea Sessions, and Ear to the Ground. Photo courtesy of Dave Dircks.
