Meet the Artists

Davey Dickens Jr & The Troubadoors

davey dickensDavey Dickens Jr. and The Troubadoors’s country music are a familiar sound around Kennett Square throughout the year.  Check out their Facebook page or listen to them on YouTube.

Pawn Shop Roses
pawn shop rosesPhiladelphia’s Pawnshop Roses combine good old fashioned American jangle rock ‘n’ roll with the rollicking blues-rock of The Stones and The Black Crowes. Throw in a touch of Motown and bit of Zeppelin–esque riff rock and you’re almost there. Front man Paul Keen’s vocals recall the soulful influence of Otis Redding and young Steve Winwood while guitarists Justin Monteleone and Kevin Bentley provide jaw-dropping switchblade licks that leave the audience wide-eyed and speechless. Sit this atop the solid rhythm wall of bassist Mike Walsh and the drumming of Zil and you’ve got yourself one of the most exciting and dynamic live acts out on the road today. Listen to them on YouTube.

John Faye and Those Meddling Kids
John Faye and Those Meddling Kids hits the Mushroom Festival Community Stage with lead singer John Faye. Brett Talley is the lead guitarist and B-Vox.
