Arts in the Park

Saturday, July 13
5:00-6:30 pm – new time this year!
Glen Providence Park Stage, 550 West State Street, Media

Excerpts from some of Birdie’s reviews:

  • NPR: Philadelphia singer Birdie Busch is a local favorite. She’s even got something of a fan club in the WXPN studios. Her blend of traditional and contemporary folk, delivered in her powerful alto, exudes emotion and uncanny wit. – for World Cafe Live
  • Nashville Scene: Emily “Birdie” Busch marries the folkie aesthetic with something altogether more rhythmic, felt and astringent. She displays the born songwriter’s structural knack and flair for the unobtrusive hook. —Edd Hurt
  • iTunes: Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter Birdie Busch has one of those voices that draws you in on the first phrase and breathes you out at the end of the record.

Thank you:

  • Concert Sponsor Seven Stones Gallery offers an extensive selection of both traditional and contemporary jewelry, pottery, art and Native American crafts including a large array of Zuni hand carved fetishes. And it’s located just over 2 blocks from the entrance to the park!.
  • Concert Series Sponsor Media Recreation Board does so much for Media – including summer camp for kids, movies in Barrall Field, the Annual July 4th Celebration, and the Great Media Garage Sale Days.
  • Concert Series Sponsor West End Flats is the bold, upscale new apartment building, one block from the park’s main entrance.
  • Concert Series Sponsor Media Open Streets had an exciting inaugural event in 2018, and will hold its second annual event on Saturday, September 28.
  • Delaware County Parks & Recreation has cared for Glen Providence Park since its creation on Halloween, 1935!
  • This summer’s Arts in the Park was made possible by funding from Project Stream, a grant initiative of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts that is regionally administered by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.

*RAIN DATE: If the weather is questionable, we will post on Facebook and on our website by 1:00 Saturday whether we will use our Sunday rain date.
