Folk musician David Brahinsky and Friends will perform a concert with the songs of John Prine, Chris Smithers, Doc Watson, Cheryl Wheeler, Tom Waits, Kate Wolf, Sweet Honey and the Rock at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, 10 Chapel Road, New Hope, on Sunday, Oct. 24, at 3 p.m.
Brahinsky is a singer, songwriter and guitarist who has been playing music from the folk tradition, from the Child Ballads to Bob Dylan, for over 30 years. One of the founders of the Roosevelt Arts Project, he has been the lead singer for The Roosevelt String Band for the last 25 years. He plays in solo concerts through New Jersey, New York and Vermont, but more often with a talented set of folk musicians and vocalists, David Brahinsky and Friends.
When he’s not singing, Brahinsky teaches comparative religion and philosophy at Bucks County Community College. He holds a PhD from Binghamton University and has been teaching a variety of courses in philosophy and world religions since 1969. He is currently a professor at Bucks County Community College’s Newtown campus.
The goal of the concert series at St. Philip’s is to create a space where music can create a community open to all regardless of income.
“New Hope is a community known for the arts and in a small way, we hope to build community through the arts,” said Rev. Michael Ruk, priest of St. Philip’s Church.
The concert is open to all with a free will donation at the door for the musicians and the outreach of St. Philip’s Church. COVID protocols will be followed. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be indoors.
