2nd Saturday April 12th, 2014
This 2nd Saturday, the Media Arts Council is thrilled to announce that Urban Drawl will be returning to the 2nd Saturday main stage at Franklin Mint Federal credit Union. Urban Drawl bowled over audiences last year with their charismatic, inspired blend of bluegrass, rhythm & blues, folk and pop. Anchored by airtight vocal harmonies and rich, inventive percussion, this band of friends from Northwest Philadelphia cranks out joyous roots music with grace and gusto. Swing with the sway of the standup bass, the crisp interplay of mandolin and guitar, and the magic rhythm of truly singular percussion. Not to miss!
April's children's activity will celebrate spring by creating felt sculptures and pictures. Led by Christine Iovannicci of “Art For Everyone”, wet felting is combined with soapy water and rubbing motions with your hands to bind the wool fibers together. Even the youngest kids can create simple balls, butterflies, or caterpillars. Older youth can make a felted picture of a sun, flower, clouds, or other simple design. Seeing the fluffy wool transform into an object is magical, so come give it a try!
The Media Arts Council works to further its mission to actively support local artists and integrate a wide range of arts into the life of the entire community.
