With the bands booked and the stages being set, organizers of Milford Music Festival’s 15th annual event proudly announced their most music-filled weekend to date!
From June 24th to the 26th there will be more than 60 musical acts in 30 different venues throughout the town of Milford Pennsylvania, and it’s all free and family-friendly.
As part of the festival, Van Gorders’ Furniture will present Little Sparrow performing at our Milford showroom, at 321 Water Street (Route 2001), on Saturday, June 25, from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. Stop by to hear some Americana 60s rock, bluegrass, country and jazz.
Little Sparrow has been performing in the Upper Delaware River region since 2008. The band is comprised of Aldo Troiani on mandolin, guitar and vocals; Carol Smith on guitar and vocals; and Lester Wilson on bass. They recently added Jay Ganz on Peal Steel guitar; Van Manakas on fiddle and guitar; and Mike Cervone on drums.
Over the years Little Sparrow has invited dozens of accomplished musicians to perform with them, including Thurman Barker, Ron Penska, Brewster Smith, Doug Rodgers, Lynn Reno, Chip Forelli, Sara Hulse, Jim Stickler, Jesse and Larry Kitzmiller, Ralph Housman, Herb Clay, Kurt Knuth, Fred Scholl, Barry Wiesenfeld, Steve Schwartz, Mike Cervone, Greg Fiske and Leroy Seals, and Dan Engvaldsen. Whether as guest musicians or emeritus players, all of these musicians have helped to define the band’s free spirited musical style.
