*We are experiencing technical difficulties with online sales. Please call 215-733-0390 to purchase your tickets!

Join us on Friday, October 21, for the last Twilight in the Gardens of the year! PMG will be entering the Appalachian Mountains with folk duo Kayla and Karns and a Diddley Bow-making activity with BridgeSet Sound!

Fiddler Kayla Williams and bassist William Karns, current students of classical music, break out of the classical realm to enchant audiences with upbeat music that’s derived from English ballads, Scottish and Irish tunes, and African folk music.

While enjoying this jaunty American music make sure to stop by the art station to make Diddley Bows with our favorite South Street music store BridgeSet Sound.  A Diddley Bow is a one-string folk instrument that is made out of repurposed material – a perfect fit for PMG!

Come hang out picnic-style and enjoy this musical experience on your cozy blanket with snacks, or just bring a 6-pack and explore!

Don’t forget about our regular Twilight offerings as well: hear more about our visionary art environment with special tours of the seldom-seen mosaicked basement, and show off your photo skills with our Instagram contest. Don’t forget to BYOBBS (Bring Your Own Booze, Blanket, and Snacks)!

PERFORMER Kayla and Karns
brings together the unique voices of Kayla Williams, one of Florida’s Official State Fiddle Champions, and bassist William Karns. Kayla and Will met at the Eastern Music Festival in 2015.  They quickly developed a connection that centered around their passion for performing folk music.  After playing a few tunes together, they were ready to share their passion with family and friends. Outside of fiddling, Kayla Williams primarily studies classical viola at the Lynn Conservatory of Music in Boca Raton, Florida.  She also enjoys singing and picking at her mandolin. William Karns studies classical Bass at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and enjoys working his family’s South Texas goat farm.

TEACHING ARTIST BridgeSet Sound is an independent, family-owned business, whose mission is to be a conduit for creation by connecting the community to music. Bridgeset Sound began in music education, designing and installing music technology labs in classrooms across the nation. Inspired by experiences in the education field, BSS opened a Philadelphia storefront in June 2013 with the goal of connecting the community to music by offering musical instruments, equipment, and private instruction.
