Songs that lend a voice to the equestrian world in a way only music can.
Once upon a time in Philadelphia there was one, and only one, country and western bar. That bar featured a tin-ceiling, hardwood floors, folk-art cowboy murals and appropriately went by the very equestrian name, Boot & Saddle. But in 1995 it appeared that the old Boot & Saddle had seen its last ride when the iconic landmark closed its doors seemingly forever.
Now, thanks to a partnership between Sean Agnew’s R5 productions, New York City’s The Bowery Presents and FCM’s Mark Fichera and Avram Hornik, good times and live music ride again at the famous Boot & Saddle. Since last fall, concertgoers have been treated to the most exciting live music from local and national artists across all genres (yes, even country) in the restored 150-person capacity venue.
And the music sounds amazing! This is in part because Boot & Saddle is one of the only small-sized venues in the United States to boast a critically acclaimed sound system.
And also in part because those rocking the new Boot & Saddle so far include Rachael Yamagata, The Donkeys, Bear Hands, Ivan & Alyosha and recently 100% Sound featured artist, Black Horse Motel. Get to know Black Horse Motel here: Five Reasons Why Black Horse Motel Is Music For And From Find People.
