Bob Beach and Paul Wilkinson

Saturday June 15th, 2019
6:00 pm to 11:00 pm
Chadds Ford, PA

We are excited to host our third A Night Outside house concert! We feel super lucky to feature local musicians Bob Beach and Paul Wilkinson.

Bob and Paul have known each other for quite awhile. They met when Bob would sit in with the Mason Porter Band. A few years ago they did several shows together as a duo and soon realized that something clicked and they should pursue this sound a little more. The result of this pursuit has been an 8 song recording that one DJ has described as “full of Clever Covers”. This recording is a combination of blues, gospel, folk, and rock tunes and a perfect example of Bob and Paul’s live show.

Bob Beach’s career has spanned almost 50 years. With his roots in blues, rock, and folk, his innate feel for the music transcends genre, and can be integrated into everything from hip hop to bluegrass to kids’ cabaret and more. In addition to masterful harmonica, Bob’s skills include strong percussive flute work, and soulful vocals. When not touring you can find Bob performing and recording with many Philadelphia and east coast artists.

Paul Wilkinson has been performing for 15 years. His musical instincts are founded on the charisma of Taj Mahal, the subtlety of Mississippi John Hurt, and the omnipresence of Bob Dylan in his life. He also can be found playing with the regional act Mason Porter or the Chester County blues band The Rolling Thunder Blues Revue.

Here are some video clips of Bob and Paul performing recently at Jamey’s House of Music in Lansdowne, PA.
