Reproducing the sounds of a CD player or iPod set on "SHUFFLE" more than fifty singer-songwriters and folk musicians cram the best moments of their craft into an amazing concert involving 4-minute sets, 4-second set changes, and only 1 stage! It's LIVE and non-stop for over 3 hours!
Now in its 5th exciting year, this one-of-a-kind event is nothing less than a Philly-sized dose of complete mayhem!
Since its debut in 2003, the Philly Song Shuffle has featured more than 100 different artists and groups, including such notable acts as Ben Arnold, Melody Gardot, John Faye, Sue & Steph of Stargazer Lily, and Susan Werner. The Shuffle has been featured in the Philadelphia City Paper and on WXPN. Patrick Rapa wrote “Far from amateur hour, last year’s Shuffle was an eclectic and lively assembly of established and up-and-coming artists aiming to put their best stuff out there.” The revolution continues!
