PASA House Concert Series

One of the longest running house concert series in the Philadelphia Area, for more than 20 years, PASA has presented its members in a true house concert setting. Since its creation by Rob Lincoln in 2000, more than 150 different performers have performed as a co-headliner.

Each concert features three PASA members as co-headliners, plus 8 to 12 "Open Chair" performers. Anyone who wants to play an original song can be an Open Chair performer. These shows are in round robin format, one song at a time and the Open Chair slots not only begin the show but also occur at the end of every round. There are usually seven rounds with an intermission in the middle.

Performers:

Joe Giacoio

Joe Giacoio has won several awards for his strange guitar playing and even stranger songwriting. Songs about post-apocalyptic nostalgia and the existential crisis of super-heroes are accompanied by "guitar ninja" riffs. Joe has often been featured on the "Guitar Gods and Goddesses" stage at the Falcon Ridge folk festival. His national TV debut was on the USA Network's "Up All Night with Rhonda Shear". Joe has also been featured on the Dr. Demento radio show. Joe performs concerts at venues up and down the East Coast, and gives lectures on guitar technique and guitar history.

Sharon Goldman

According to WFUV's John Platt, "For the last decade, Sharon Goldman has consistently been one of contemporary folk's most imaginative, warm, and honest singer-songwriters." Raised on Long Island and based in central New Jersey, Goldman is also prolific, with seven solo albums to her credit, including 2019's EVERY TRIP AROUND THE SUN. She is a finalist in the 2019 Connecticut Folk Festival Grassy Hill Songwriting Contest and hosts the twice-monthly Song on the Floor songwriting feedback group in her hometown of Metuchen, NJ.

Carla Ulbrich

Carla Ulbrich (Ohl-Brick) is a displaced Southerner living in New Jersey who just released her 9th CD, "Twang". The humorous singer-songwriter's indie CDs have been featured on the BBC, Dr. Demento, Sirius XM Comedy Radio, Pandora, and NPR's Morning Edition.
Performing since the late '90s in venues from Alaska to England, Carla has appeared as a musical guest on the TV shows "The Revolution" and "Up All Night with Rhonda" and was an extra in the movie "Sharknado 2."
