Honey Brook Borough Concerts in the Park


The FREE Concert in the Park series will kick off on Sunday, June 3 at 5:30 pm, when The Porkroll Project takes the stage, performing for the second time in Honey Brook Borough Park. The Porkroll Project hails from the greater Philadelphia area and are a hard rocking blues band who play a high energy blend of fresh covers and originals. Their music is Blues done up Porkroll-style, with a little bit of grease, a good dose of funk and a whole lotta drive and grind. Throw that together with some dangerous lead guitar, harmonica and ripp’in piano and you have a recipe for an evening where anything can happen! The band includes Neil “Porkroll” Taylor on guitar, Paul Matecki on piano, Ed Young on bass guitar, Andy Haley on drums and Buddy Cleveland on harmonica. Check out the band’s website at porkrollproject.com

The second concert is scheduled for Sunday, July 8 at 5:30 pm with Across the Pond performing their high energy, traditional style Celtic repertoire. A Honey Brook favorite, Across the Pond has performed for us twice before, each time drawing a large enthusiastic crowd. The band consists of Michael Morrison on guitar, mandolin, flute, banjo and vocals. Chuck Krepley plays fiddle, banjo and guitar and Dan Diviney plays whistles and bodhran. The excellent musicianship and magical sound of this trio will transport the audience Across the Pond to the Emerald Isle. Accompanying the band will be Irish dancers from the Hooley School of Irish Dance. Check out the bands website at acrossthepondmusic.com

The third concert features The Wild Hymns and will take place on Sunday, August 5 at 5:30 pm. The Wild Hymns perform the original songs of Megan Woodward Hewitt and her band. The band hails from South Central Pennsylvania and can be described as melodically distinct and enchanting neo-folk with elements of jazz, pop, swing, world, Americana and mellow rock and roll. The band consists of Megan Woodward Hewitt on guitar and vocals, Jeff Hewitt on guitar, Cindy David on bass and vocals, Shelley Herlihg on percussion and vocals and Robert Shuckle on keyboard. The Wild Hymns promise an evening of hauntingly beautiful music with a mystical, spiritual feel. Check out the bands website at thewildhymns.com
