Picks of the Platzes: True Soul on Both Sides

We had a fun first day of ‘Festing up here in Bethlehem! Now, it’s onto Day 2, and Phillip and I have a fresh pair of Picks for you to enjoy in your Musikfest travels.

Gerard’s Pick (The Sheriff’s Selection): Alex Radus

Martin Guitar Lyrikplatz (South Side), 4-5 p.m.

I’m going local today with the multi-talented Alex Radus, who is an outstanding songwriter across a variety of genres including folk, rock, jazz, and more. He’s also a workhorse, and this late afternoon set is his second of the day!

Phillip’s Pick: Shamarr Allen

PNC Bank Stadtplatz (North Side), 9:30-11 p.m.

Phillip says: Shamarr Allen brings True Orleans to the stage. An amazing trumpet player, Shamarr writes and performs fun and happy songs, and does covers of songs like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in style not to be missed.
