Easton Public Market has gained a reputation for supporting and promoting locally-grown, fresh foods and the vendors who supply them. However, this open marketplace in the heart of downtown Easton also provides a different kind of nourishment, giving local performing artists another venue to showcase their talents.
This I learned when I stopped by Easton Public Market’s Community Room, located adjacent to Scratch, last night to catch a set from Soul Folks, who I had previously seen perform with Not For Coltrane at Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem. Of course, Soul Folks brought it as they usually do, living up to their name with their incredibly versatile vocal talents – they even performed an original rap song – and stripped-down, yet intricate instrumentation. It was a truly enjoyable night of covers and original, and I even took a little bit of video, as I’m known to do. Check it out.
More enjoyment is coming up all month long. Multiple times per week, there is live entertainment inside the Community Room. Tonight, DJ Kaos will be there from 6-9 p.m. spinning classic hip hop and ska. Then, on Thursday from 5-7 p.m., Not For Coltrane will be on-hand to play some tunes.
If you like great pizza, beer, and fresh, local tunes, we recommend that you check back with Scratch Easton on Facebook all month long to find out who’s playing next.
