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.

Benjamin ChandlerBlending fingerstyle and bluegrass flatpicking into his folk based songwriting, Benjamin Chandler combines his love of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and James Taylor with the guitar influences of Doc Watson and Jerry Reed. While many songs are introspective observations, others push outward with anthem-like choruses and breakneck guitar solos. Both solo and with his band, Sweet 66, Benjamin has performed around the Philadelphia area and is working on recording his music for future release.
Bob MecklenburgerBob Mecklenburger has been performing with his acoustic 6- and 12-string guitars for more 40 years, singing his original songs and folk songs. His clear voice, earnest presence, and fresh song-styling are reminiscent of John Denver. His music speaks of homespun values, the beauty of nature, and the importance of being true to oneself. Accomplished at flatpicking and fingerpicking guitar styles, he highlights both on his CD, "Do It!". Bob is an active member and past president of the Princeton Folk Music Society.
Michelle MillerMichelle Miller is a singer/songwriter who has appeared all over the Philadelphia area. She has performed at venues such as the Mercer Museum Folkfest, Ambler Octoberfest, Please Touch Museum, The Keswick Theater, and schools, colleges, and libraries. Her music is a little country, a little pop, and she loves creating beautiful harmonies on her recordings. During the daytime, Michelle is a children's librarian and presents story times five days a week. She also has created a children's radio show called Miss Michelle's Story Time airing on montcoradio.com every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. which incorporates her favorite stories, her original songs, and popular children's music.
