Vocalist Lucy Wainwright Roche to Play Havertown

She will be joined by Seattle-based Lindsay Fuller at a concert Saturday night sponsored by the Philadelphia Folksong Society.

The Philadelphia Folksong Society—the folks who stage the Philadelphia Folk Festival each summer—will bring two celebrated female vocalists to Havertown this weekend.

Lucy Wainwright Roche and Lindsay Fuller will perform Saturday night at St. Andrews Center for the Arts.

Roche, who has opened for Indigo Girls, was described by NPR as having a "sincere and raw" voice. She comes from a musical family:

Lucy Wainwright Roche is the daughter of singer-songwriters Loudon Wainwright III, a 2010 Grammy Award winner, and Suzzy Roche, who, along with her sisters (Lucy's aunts) Maggie and Terre Roche, make up the female vocal group The Roches, known for their original harmonies. [...]

Lucy is also the half-sister of singer-songwriters Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright

Fuller was born in Alabama to an ex-NFL player and a painter. She has a fan in Dave Matthews, who said, "Lindsay Fuller’s songwriting is timeless, her voice is haunting and urgent and the more I listen the more I want to hear."

Oregon-based musician Kaia Wilson will also perform. The concert begins at 7 p.m. at the center, which is located at 17 Llandillo Road. Admission is $10, or free to PFS members. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the PFS website.
