Headhouse Shambles goes country with Sweetbriar Rose for an evening of folk sounds and dancing slow with your sweety.
Sweetbriar Rose brings their mix of rootsy, thorny, rose-hipped gypsy Americana folk and jazz along with some good old foot-stomping and finger-picking, crooning and wailing.
The party will begin each night at 6pm with Society Hill Dance Academy and Philadelphia Dance Foundation on hand for an hour before each concert offering a free dance lesson for young and old, featuring dances to go along with each style of music. The bands will perform from 7-9pm. Drinks and light fare will be available from the restaurants surrounding Headhouse Square.
The program is made possible by the City of Philadelphia’s Performance in Public Spaces Grant and the Philadelphia Activities Fund and the South Street Headhouse District.
