Yes! And... Collaborative Arts, with the Philadelphia Folksong Society and Yards Brewing Company, presents an evening of music with The Spinning Leaves, along with guests Zach Stock and John Mallinen, to raise funds for this summer’s “Camperships.”
Philadelphia nonprofit Yes! And... Collaborative Arts seeks to “equip children and young people with the tools to be better learners, to believe in themselves and to realize their dreams through the work of creating collaboratively with peers and professional artists.” They spend most of their time with kids living in low-income neighborhoods in and around the Philadelphia area, but believe that collaborative arts education is important for all ages, everywhere. Yes! And... never turns a child away because of money. This event will raise funds to send kids to camps throughout Philadelphia this summer.
The Spinning Leaves, co-founders of the Philly Folk Parade, on the heels of their new 7-inch EP, Head Aglow, will be sending out feel good psychedelic folk tunes. Zach Stock, one of the many professional artists that collaborates with Yes! And... has been packing out Philly venues since his debut last October, and will be sharing his songs before heading to the Philadelphia Folk Festival this summer. There will also be a rare special guest performance from well-loved Philadelphia songsmith John Mallinen. Along with supplying their usual selection of fresh beers on tap, Yards Brewery is also providing a round on the house, and a brewery tour for attendees who purchase VIP tickets to the event.
