Gift Guide for Music Lovers

We’re just 10 days away from Christmas and if you’re still shopping, here are a few ideas for the music lovers on your list.

Record Player – Know someone that doesn’t have a record player but wants to start listening to vinyl?  A portable record player makes a great first turntable.  With built in speakers, 3 speeds and RCA output, you can just plug it in and play.

New Stones Album – Have a Rolling Stones fan on your list?  The Stones’ new album, Blue and Lonesome, is their first studio album in over 10 years and the band’s first album of all covers.  Loaded with old blues songs, this is the type of blue Christmas you want to have!


Art by a Local Artist – Buying for someone who has everything?  A piece of art always makes a great gift!  Vinyl Revival has a nice selection of artwork made locally including pottery by Bob Deane, drawings by Drew Arata, and creepy doll art by Kimmymetal’s Creepy Creations and Art.

What’s better than a music festival?  A tie-dye music festival!

If you’re looking for some family fun this Saturday, look no further than the Tie-Dye Music Festival at Community Arts Center, 414 Plush Mill Road, Wallingford, PA. The Tie-Dye Music Festival is an all ages, free admission, family event sponsored by Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union.

A celebration of the care-free days of summer and the creative and colorful process of tie-dying, attendees may purchase event t-shirts for $10 and tie-dye them themselves for no additional charge or people may bring up to 2 items of their own to tie-dye for a $5 charge.  CAC staff and expert tie-dye artist Bob Deane will be on hand to help participants with the tie-dye process and with achieving the desired design and color of their finished products.

Throughout the day, six local bands, each with their own unique sound, will entertain festival-goers.   Music includes the bluegrass sounds of  the Whirled Peas, improvisational folk rock from Beaufort, well crafted original music by New Jersey singer-songwriter Gordon Vincent, your favorite classic rock by Friday Revival, carefully selected acoustic covers by Herb Mondros and original music from Wilmington’s JB Cole, who is quickly gaining popularity as an emerging talent.

The Tie-Dye Music Festival, July 13th from 2 – 7 p.m., is a rain or shine event.  Guests are encouraged to bring chairs/blankets if outside. If inside, chairs will be provided. Additional  parking provided by  Pendle Hill, next door to the CAC, at 338 Plush Mill Rd.
