Strand of Oaks is returning to Philadelphia for Winter Classic V at Boot & Saddle
Rolling out into its fifth year, Strand of Oaks’ Winter Classic show series returns to Boot and Saddle in Philadelphia. Launched in 2015 towards the end of a year-and-a-half tour in support of HEAL, this end-of-the-year wrap-up has become not only a staple in the Philly music scene but also to Showalter himself. In his own words, these three consecutive nights of acoustic shows will be “a closing party that we can collectively reflect on our year together.”
Recently having moved from Philly to Austin, this year at Boot and Saddle will especially be near to Showalter’s heart. It would be hard to justify missing a show that the singer-songwriter himself says reminds him of “how wonderful this family is that we’ve grown together,” and you can get tickets and more information on the shows at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Strand of Oaks released its sixth album, Eraserland, earlier this year; listen to “Keys” below.
