Folkadelphia Sessions Volume Three Compilation

Folkadelphia Sessions Volume III is a collection of some of our favorite and most diverse in-studio performances curated by host Fred Knittel and tracked during our third year of making live sessions a featured component on our WXPN radio show in Philadelphia.

All of these sessions, Sessions Volume I and II, and more are available in our Folkadelphia Sessions archive:

Folkadelphia is a Philadelphia-based folk-adjacent organization and WXPN radio show. The radio show runs every Wednesday night from 10-11 PM ET. More information and a full archive of in-studio sessions can be found at
