New Monthly Tea Special:
Especially for The Flower Show
During the month of March only!

As a tribute to the amazing displays at this years Holland themed flower show, the tea room has created a special treat for this months special:

HollanDaisy has a layered flavor that delights and entices. It begins with a base of our Organic Earl Grey and our Rose Congou Black tea for a deep flavor, then as many flowers as we could find we tossed in letting the petals rest in the fragrant mix. Blue Corn flowers, Calendula, Rose petals and a touch of lavender decorate this fragrant blend. The final touches are a smidge of mint and a pinch of cardamom which are uplifting for the senses and the mind. This mix promotes a relaxed body and a sense of well being.

Instead of buying a bouquet come and enjoy a cup that offers health benefits while delivering great pleasure in a cup.

Our collaborators at Crust have also caught the floral fever and concocted some special treats that will be featured at the Tea Room. Come in and try a Lavender infused shortbread or a Rose glazed
Blueberry scone. Both treats will be served for the entire month of March.All flower show ticket holders are invited to stop by the tea room with their ticket stub to receive a 15% discount off any food or beverage during the week of March 11th- 19th.

POETS FOR PEACE

Thursday, March 23rd 6-9pm
Donations for performers appreciated
All ages.

Poets For Peace is a collective movement of bringing hope and inspiration onto the road to combat the negative impacts of the Western war machine through dialogue and storytelling. This installment will be fronted by three Philadelphians: Stephanie B., LindoYes, and Marshall James Kavanaugh. Stephanie B., author of Letters To Aunt Lucy, uses her writing to forage on the flower of the spirit and bring it back to the hive to help make honey. LindoYes is an artist who uses personal experiences that reflect on the social injustices of our urban streets to paint whole new worlds of words where the day begins with a woke heartbeat. Marshall James Kavanaugh has spent the last few years traveling the country, collecting haikus from the expansive big skies found out west and fast-paced cities back east, most recently publishing a collection of essays from his experiences with the Water Protectors at Standing Rock in North Dakota. In each word these two poets share is the intention of a better world manifested through communal exchange. Together their poetic musings will direct the audience towards a sense of inner peace that will shine a beacon of light onto the darkness of the outer world.

Dann Pell is a guitarist, vocalist and percussionist based in Chester County, PA. His music embraces folk traditions; country-blues, jazz, chants/hymns/spirituals, and incorporates unique expansive rhythmic devices akin to those of Steve Reich, John Coltrane, Phillip Glass into the folk idiom. He spends most days singing hymns to the elderly or entertaining friends with new works of music, and on off days can most likely be found exploring exotic polyrhythm whilst drinking mate in the comfort of his Phoenixville home.


Brian John McBrearty is a Philadelphia-based guitarist and composer. Brian’s music combines American primitive guitar style with ambient textures, minimalist composition techniques and elements of drone and psychedelia. A graduate of New York University’s renowned jazz program, Brian has logged time touring and recording in a variety of musical contexts, including experimental and jazz groups, meat-and- potatoes rock and now as a solo performer. Brian’s meditative, hypnotic and melodic guitar orchestrations are cinematic in scope and recall the work of John Fahey, David Pajo’s Papa M project, and Sonny Sharrock. Brian released his debut album, Things I Recall, in summer 2015 and his latest release, The Tremolo Tapes, is now available on bandcamp and on cassette via the UK imprint, Blue Tapes.

Random Concerts: Elison Jackson & Brother Darkly

Elison Jackson is a garage–folk/ psychedelic rock band from Philadelphia, PA & New Haven, CT. The band has put out three records and several bedroom-demo mix-tapes since 2011. Their third LP, “Do Not Fear To Kill A Dead Man”, was released in the fall of 2013 to critical acclaim. Featuring basement organs, haunted lyrics and Neil Young-esque guitar jams, their sound has expanded significantly from its folk roots, moving forward with a strong foundation into blues, 80’s analog synth, and prog-rock. Their newest record, a 5-song collection titled “Silver Sounds: Hallucinations”, takes a step further in the band’s sonic progression. Heavier drums, driving synth, and atmospheric bowed upright bass fill out the songs in a way the band has never achieved before.

Staying busy since their beginnings in 2010, Elison Jackson has emerged as one of the most consistent and unique bands in CT. Sharing the stage with Elvis Perkins, Akron/Family, Mystic Braves, Simone Felice and other like-minded contemporaries, the band has built a loyal following in CT and beyond. Primary songwriter and singer Sam Perduta currently resides in Philadelphia, PA, after living and basing the band out of New Haven from 2012-2015. They are currently in the studio recording a follow up at the infamous “Blazone” in New Haven, CT, and steadily releasing home recordings and demos.
 
“Elison Jackson has added an extra layer to their already psychedelic sound by dropping a record that resembles a psychedelic experience in of itself” – The Deli Magazine
 
“..evokes sepia tacked imaginary, the drawers of memory materialize in present as a mysterious revenant….as if “Time Out Of Mind” was recorded by a band of twenty-somethings in a garage: lucid madness”- Gabriele Benzing, OndaRock Italy
 
“With two solid full-length albums and a handful of EPs and singles now to their credit, Elison Jackson has established itself as one of Connecticut’s most consistently interesting young bands. Their most recent LP, last fall’s “Do Not Fear to Kill a Dead Man” (Telegraph Recording Company), is an assured nine-song collection of rootsy rock songs…”- Rolling Stone contributor Eric Danton, Listen Dammit
 
“Elison Jackson comes across as being possessed with an inherent wisdom bound by some ancient knowledge capable of evoking eerie comfort from shaking hands with the vague and wistful memories of lives past.” – Drop Zone LA
 
Brother Darkly is the solo project of Hanging Hills frontman, Gregory W. Dyson.
