Baby’s First Rodeo – Philly’s own Cosmic Country Party
Maybe This Is Your First Rodeo?
On Saturday, October 7th, The Cooperage Project is thrilled to host “Philly’s own Cosmic Country Party”, Baby’s First Rodeo, a production that curates traveling and local musicians, line dance lessons, and a variety of country western-infused vendors. Baby’s First Rodeo at The Cooperage will feature a headlining performance by country music sweetheart Karen Jonas (of Fredericksburg, VA) and local opening act The Dishonest Fiddlers (of Honesdale, PA).
This family friendly musical happening has the vibe of a mini-music festival rather than a stand alone concert. The retro-country aesthetic that Baby’s First Rodeo thrives on is the perfect fit for the rustic Cooperage building’s brick and wood walls and Americana roots.
Americana/Alt-Country songwriter Karen Jonas knows how to tell a story. She dazzles with energy that showcases her nine-year touring chemistry with her band and the true joy of their art. Karen has released five full-length records and is a three-time Wammie (Washington Area Music) Award winner for Best Country and Americana Artist, Mid Atlantic Song Contest winner, Ameripolitan Award nominee, and official SXSW and UK Americanafest Showcasing Artist.
The Dishonest Fiddlers are a highly revered string band from Pennsylvania’s coal region. The group is led by folk-singer/songwriter Dave Brown on guitar/harmonica, and features Shawn Caden on mandolin, and Jasper Paciotti on upright bass. A mixed bag of jug band, bluegrass, and folk music are obvious influences that have helped to foundation and forge the band’s unique sound.
