HAVERFORD TOWNSHIP MUSIC FESTIVAL
Nationally Acclaimed Blues Artist JOE LOUIS WALKER tops our bill
for a full day of late-summer family fun on Saturday, August 27, 2022
The 10th annual HAVERFORD TOWNSHIP MUSIC FESTIVAL is scheduled for Saturday, August 27, 2022, from 12 noon to 9 p.m. It will present a full day’s worth of entertainment, headlined by nationally acclaimed electric blues guitarist, singer and songwriter Joe Louis Walker. This Blues Hall of Fame artist plus additional headliners, to be announced shortly, will be supported by numerous regional performers, representing a wide range of musical genres (e.g., Jazz, Rock, Pop, Folk, Classical, Blues and Country – something to please everyone!) from throughout the Delaware Valley and beyond, on multiple stages near the intersection of East Eagle & Darby Roads in Havertown, PA. There will be area businesses, food vendors, beer gardens, children’s activities and much more end-of-summer fun for the entire family. Voluntary donations will be greatly appreciated and gratefully accepted.
NPR Music describes San Francisco native JOE LOUIS WALKER (aka JLW) as “powerful, soul-stirring, fierce and gritty…a legendary boundary-pushing icon of modern blues.” The Chicago Sun-Times has hailed JLW’s music as “proudly modern, designed to rest comfortably alongside anything from the Black Keys or Jack White. Walker’s voice demands attention: scorching, imploring, always commanding,” and praises his “heavy guitar fills, soul, gospel harmony, and vortex of power chords and funk. He is living proof of the boundless potential of blues.” In 2013, JLW was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. He has released more than two dozen albums, the latest of which is 2021’s Eclectic Electric (Cleopatra Records).
This will be the first official HAVERFORD MUSIC FESTIVAL since our highly successful 2019 event headlined by Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, and the only one scheduled for 2022. It is produced exclusively by the 501(c)(3) organization Haverford Township Education, Arts and Music Society (HTEAMS).
