  • Organizers of the 2nd annual Brandywine Folk Festival have announced the finalized line-up for the show Aug. 23 to 25 in Anson B. Nixon Park, Kennett Square, Pa.
    This year's artists include Good Old War, Sean Hoots Trio, Pearl & the Beard, Mean Lady, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Secret Sister, Mischief Brew, Toy Soldiers, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Nico's Gun, Cheers Elephant, and Tin Bird Choir. The event will also feature The Districts and The Fleeting Ends who recently performed at WXPN's Xponential Festival in Camden, N.J.
    The event is presented by The Brandywine Folk Collective, Historic Kennett Square Society, and WXPN.
    The Brandywine Folk Festival Team is actively seeking volunteers for the festival. Volunteer's get free admission for each day of participation and are encouraged to sign-up for the weekend, a $65 dollar value. Volunteers who sign-up for the weekend are provided with free camping.
    Those who are interested can see the website to submit a volunteer application, at www.brandywinefolkfestival.com/information. Early applications are recommended to get your desired volunteer shift and responsibilities.
    Music with a mission
    Organizers of the event said festival goers, volunteers, vendors, and artists can all feel great about participating because of the Brandywine Folk Collective's partnership with Southeastern Pennsylvania Autism Resource Center.
    Portions of all festival proceeds go to aid this charity which provides a wealth of different services for children on the autism spectrum. Folk music fans can support a great cause and have a blast doing it.
