Concerts in the Courtyard: Sparkle Pony
Sparkle Pony is fun, refreshing, creative and difficult not to love. This little Bluegrass, Newgrass and Folk quartet has quickly earned the reputation for being one of the most well polished, high-quality bands on the Philly Folk scene right now.
Lead singer Valentina Raffaelli, from Tuscany Italy is a true vocal powerhouse and brings a unique take to an old familiar style. Her performances are always high energy and dynamic, she is a true entertainer. Lewin Barringer on guitar, the "well-seasoned" pro has played with everyone from Randy Travis, to Peter Rowan, Blues Traveler and G. Love & Special Sauce and is one of the best rhythm guitar players in the area. Molly Hebbert-Wilson on bass is one of the finest and hardest working upright players on the Philadelphia music scene today. Award-winning Fiddler Sarah Larsen has also become a permanent member of the band. She brings that fiddle power and country class. On Mandolin Bryce Milano, one of the most impressive mandolin players in country right now. His skills on the mandolin are instantly noticeable and addicting.
