Adrenaline Pumpkin
WEXT

Every October, four guys come out of the pumpkin patch to play groovy tunes to the folks who come out to Sunnyside Gardens in Saratoga.  Johnny Twoseeds, A. Pumpkin, C. Pumpkin and O. Pumpkin are Adrenaline Pumpkin.  See these guys Saturdays and Sundays from 12-4p.

Somehow we convinced them to leave the pumpkin patch and the donuts and apple cider to come play a few tunes for us on the radio.

The Thistle And Shamrock: New Fall Sounds

Oct 20, 2017

New music is always in season, but autumn brings with it a special skew in our tastes. So for this episode of The Thistle and Shamrock, host Fiona Ritchie has collected another hour's worth to offer you, including The Breath, Robin Bullock, Ruth Keggin, and James Ritchie.

Growing up outside Philadelphia, Devon Gilfillian learned about the working musician's life from his father, a singer and percussionist in a beloved local party band. He found his own path as a singer-songwriter and moved to Nashville just a few years ago, in hopes of finding a community appreciative of his blend of social consciousness, rootsy melodies and soulful grooves. Like so many before him, Gilfillian found those peers while waiting tables in a popular local venue, where he also absorbed the musical lessons of the stars who stopped by on tour.
