Monthly Concert with Mark Bragg

From the event description:

Mark Bragg doesn’t need much of an introduction in his home town of St. John’s, Newfoundland, where he’s as much a music establishment himself. While Bragg’s musical catalog is full of dark humor and southern Gothic flavor, his 2018 album “Winter” hosts a subtler cast of characters, making it his most accessible album to date. 

When: Saturday, Feb. 29, 8-10 p.m.
Where: Philadelphia Folksong Society, 6156 Ridge Ave.
Admission: $0-$15
