Performers:

Bob Baldwin

Well-known Philly Singer-Songwriter Meghan Cary has written the following about Bob Baldwin-- "Wrapped in sweet folk music, Bob's stories probe the complicated and sometimes elusive emotions underlying everyday events." This will be Bob's debut as a PASA houseconcert co-headliner.

Marion Halliday

Marion Halliday, a native Kentuckian now living in Philadelphia, turned to songwriting in earnest in 2016, writing urban influenced modern folk music that reflects her bluegrass and bourbon-infused roots. Marionís first solo full-length album, released July 2019, "Rings Around Saturn", debuted at #3 on US/International folk radio charts. The album also made the FAI listing of Top Albums for 2019. The title track was described by one critic as "beautifully sung -- a delicate and thoughtful piece that showcases a tremendous characterful vocal talent" (Chris Porter, Stereo Stickman, July, 2019). Another, writing specifically about "Thoughts and Prayers" (Track #2), described it as "miraculous, her voice is a new beacon of peace in this troublesome time." (Joe Timmons, Indie Pulse July 2019). In November, 2019, Marion was a featured performer in the prestigious "Semi-Formal Showcase" at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) annual conference held in Stamford CT (a division of Folk Alliance International). In January, 2018, and again in July, 2020, Marion was named "One of the Ones to Watch" by the Nashville Songwriters' Association International. Also in 2018, Marion was runner-up for Best of Philly Live Performer (Folk/Country Category); she was also a featured "DJ Showcase" performer at the NERFA 2018 annual conference as the selection of Ron Olesko, WFDU "Traditions" DJ.

Ray Naylor

Ray Naylor has been performing since 1980 and writing songs a few years before that. He's performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival twice (1997 and 2017). In addition to performing, Ray has hosted 2 radio programs (1980-82 and currently on WPPM-FM in Philadelphia). He managed 3 performing songwriters in the 1990s, booked several small venues, and produced two concert series. He has also produced and hosted a YouTube program called "The Performing Songwriter" which ended in June 2018 after 100 shows.
You: The fourth performer can be YOU! The first eight (or so) performers to sign up at the show will sing one original song as part of the concert. This is an extra special OPEN STAGE SHOWCASE OPPORTUNITY, so bring along any instruments you'll want to play. Doors open at 7. The first people to arrive get to sign up first. The open stage slots often fill up, so come early to get a slot.
