Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as David Gray performs a live midday concert on Friday.



With more than two decades of songwriting and ten studio albums under his belt, English singer-songwriter David Gray is still going strong and touring to support his newest effort, 2014's Mutineers. The tour will make a stop in Philly at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts on June 19. Gray will be performing a joint show with Philly folk artist Amos Lee.

Although three of his albums have reached #1 on the charts, Gray experienced phenomenal commercial success with the release of his fourth album, 1998's White Ladder. His expansive career since then has seen him shift from primarily acoustic-guitar oriented folk music to more of an indie rock sound, with computer-generated music accompanying his voice and acoustic instrumentation. On his new Mutineers, Gray addresses a need to surprise himself, not just in terms of how he works, but the ideas that drive him and the people he has worked with.

Join us at World Cafe Live for a Free At Noon concert featuring David Gray by RSVPing at XPN.org; you can also tune in at 88.5 FM or XPN.org.

Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as June Rich performs a live midday concert on Friday.



Philadelphia folk rockers June Rich make a triumphant return to the stage for a live Free at Noon performance next Friday. It's been twenty years since the band performed live together, but the five-piece is getting back together for a handful of shows to celebrate the anniversary of their 1995 debut LP.

Coming out of a tight-nit musical community based in Manayunk and the Grape Street Pub, June Rich was one of the city's most in-demand bands during the nineties. They earned a Philadelphia Magazine Best Band in Philadelphia award, performed at the opening night of the Electric Factory, played a main stage slot at the 1996 Philadelphia Folk Fest (the only local band to do so that year) and appeared on Mountain Stage.

Join us for this special Free at Noon with June Rich at World Cafe Live by RSVPing here or tuning in at 88.5 FM / XPN.org. June Rich performs at The Ardmore Music Hall on Saturday, June 20th. http://www.ardmoremusic.com/event/814973-xpn-welcomes-june-rich-ardmore/
