Selwyn Birchwood performing in New Holland

By on May 8, 2019

Visionary blues star Selwyn Birchwood, touring in support of his latest Alligator Records release, “Pick Your Poison,” will perform at the Spring Gulch Folk Festival in New Holland on Sunday, May 19. Birchwood is the final act of the three-day festival.

With his fiery guitar and lap steel playing, his trailblazing, instantly memorable songs and gritty, unvarnished vocals, Birchwood is among the most extraordinary young stars in the blues. His deep familiarity with blues tradition allows him to bust the genre wide open, adding new sounds, colors and textures, all delivered with a revival tent preacher’s fervor and a natural storyteller’s charisma.

The Spring Gulch Folk Festival runs May 17 through 19 at Spring Gulch Resort Campground, 475 Lynch Road, New Holland. Ticket prices vary, and some options include camping. To see a full schedule of acts and learn more, visit
