July Second Saturday Headquart


July Second Saturday Headquarters with Music by Sweetbriar Rose Featuring Arrah Fisher

Location: The Cooperage: 1030 Main Street, Honesdale PA
Time: Jul 14, 2018@7:00 PM

The Americana-tinged folk-noir band Sweetbriar Rose is a band of rootsy, thorny, rose-hipped gypsies who you’re equally likely to glimpse running in full sun, barefoot on a field of bluegrass, brooding in three-part harmony over a murder ballad in a shady grove, or channeling the spirit of a 1940’s Balkan jazz joint. If you heard them through the wall, you might imagine a stray melody from the carnival caravan was whirling and beckoning just on the other side of the darkened woods. The band is led by award-winning songwriter and singer Heather Shayne Blakeslee, and been featured at regional venues and festivals such as World Cafe Live, Bourbon & Branch, numerous Sexton Sideshow productions, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Brandywine Folk Festival, Bethlehem’s Musikfest and at the New Jersey Folk Festival. The band’s 2013 debut album, Cultivar, was called “impressive and spooky” by critic A.D. Amorosi of the  Philadelphia City Paper and “a terrific CD” by the iconic Gene Shay, retired host of WXPN’s The Folk Show. The Philadelphia Folk Song society counts Sweetbriar Rose among its “most exciting and boundary-pushing acts,” and they are gearing up to record their second record this spring, to be released in fall 2018.

Arrah Fisher is a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and former front woman of Arrah and the Ferns. Originally from Indiana, Fisher has spent the last decade residing and creating music in Philly during which she and The Ferns frequently toured nationally.
