In the Pocket Concert | New Hope, PA - January 27, 2012

DJ Caterina just hopped off a plane and back into Dallas from a whirlwind trip to Philadelphia/New Hope to watch the In the Pocket* band perform Friday night at the 2012 Winter Festival concert. Master of ceremonies Pierre Robert oversaw the festivities. The first set belonged to John Danaher's The Quiet Men, a local Irish-type folk band who performed their versions of Tom Petty's Breakdown and Blind Faith's Can't Find My Way Home, in addition to their own original music and traditional folk tunes.
