On April 1st, New Bedford Folk Fest faves Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE-vul") return to The Blackstone River Theatre with their infectious, original spin on traditional music and alternative folk rock.  In 2016, their CD, "The Social Music Hour Vol. 1", received an International Folk Music Awards' "Album Of The Year" Nomination.  They kick off their 2017 season with a fresh round of re-imagined traditional songs and their new International Folk DJ Top 20 single, "The Warmth Of Other Suns".  Borrowing novelist Richard Wright's phrase and paying homage to Isabel Wilkerson's (http://isabelwilkerson.com/) thought provoking, timely and moving book of the same name, this inspiring song of resistance is available to all as a free download.
 
“This is as close to a musical "Come to Jesus" moment as you'll get outside the gospel roots of the deep south. Yonkers, NY based Spuyten Duyvil are the real deal when it comes to roots revivalist Americana music. Historians, outstanding songwriters, accomplished musicians and a musical family atmosphere converge to make some of the most outstanding music around today.”  - The Alternate Root TV
