For the third performance in our 2017 Arts in the Park, Friends of Glen Providence Park is delighted to present Jeffrey Gaines! Raised in Harrisburg, PA, this singer-songwriter has been heralded for his soul-searching lyrics and his powerful live performances. With only his voice and a guitar for accompaniment, Gaines has earned a reputation as a captivating performer, entertaining audiences everywhere he goes.
“An ethereal soul… insistent, impassioned, full of self-knowledge.” — The Philadelphia Inquirer
“Gaines’ soulful, wounded vocals make a case for his being one of pop’s finest singers…” — The Boston Globe
Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the historical stage for an early evening concert. After the performance, head into Media for dinner and shopping, just 2 blocks away on State Street.
Thank you to our concert sponsors, Shere-E-Punjab Indian Restaurant, Media Recreation Board, and West End Walk; and to Delaware County Parks & Recreation.
This summer's Arts in the Park was made possible by funding from Project Stream, a grant initiative of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts that is regionally administered by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. Additional support for Project Stream is provided by PECO.
