The Sin City Band (Location change: Enchanted Woods lawn)
May 16, 5:30–8:00 pm
The Sin City Band has been playing American music throughout the Delaware Valley since 1974. They have been ambassadors of ”genre blending" from The Grand Bahamas to The Grand Opera House, from New England to Colorado and from Wilmington to Newark. They have never met a dance-floor that they didn't like. Winterthur welcomes back Sin City.
Betty and the Bullet
May 30, 5:30–8:00 pm
Join Michael "Kid" Davis and Bethany Bullington for a rhythmic run over some rockabilly jive.
The Splashing Pearls
June 13, 5:30–8:00 pm
The Splashing Pearls are one of the most engaging bands in a long time. Original songs written by Peter Scobell that tell stories "the old-fashioned way," supported by a quirky if not unique blend of instrumentation. While it was happenstance that they arrived as a trio of ukulele, steel drums, and upright bass, the real "coup de grace" is the wonderful vocal by Larkin Salemi. Whether it be folk, rock, blues, reggae, swing, fun, or vaudeville The Splashing Pearls entertain!
June 27, 5:30–8:00 pm
Buffalo Chip & The Plainsmen perform mostly in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Led by singer and guitarist Chip Porter (featuring members of local band Montana Wildaxe), the band mixes a wide variety of acoustic styles including bluegrass, folk, country, americana, rock, and blues.
July 18, 5:30–8:00 pm
Winterthur welcomes multi-instrumentalist, composer and teacher, Mark Unruh, along with Bobby Bloomingdale (The Bullets), and Chip Porter (Montana Wildaxe) for an enjoyable evening of bluegrass, folk, and blues variations.
