Where else in the Philadelphia area can you spend a summer evening with friends in a medieval-style cloister garden, enjoying the music of world-class guitarist Blane Bostock, delicious food and refreshing beverages? Celebrate the beginning of summer with an evening in Glencairn Museum’s cloister garden. The event will include live music, light refreshments, beer, wine, access to the collections on the first floor of the Museum and the sunset view from the tower.

Live music will be provided by Blane Bostock. Blane Bostock began his guitar studies at age 9, playing folk and rock music. At 13 he began his jazz studies, and studied with teachers from Philadelphia for seven years. Bostock played for many years in a variety of settings: small groups, big bands, rock, soul, disco and country bands, as well as jazz ensembles. In 2003 Bostock appeared with Latin legend Johnny Pacheco as a soloist in “A Night of Latin Classics,” featuring arrangements especially commissioned for the concert from artists like Reuben Gonzales (“Buena Vista Social Club”) and Bebo Valdes. Performances were held at the Allentown Symphony and the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Pennsylvania. Currently, he is looking forward to serving as musical director and performing in a musical based on the Blue Period of Pablo Picasso, at the Drake theater (15th and Spruce Philadelphia, PA) from August 18th through the 27th 2017. The musical will feature flamenco and French cabaret dancers from Mexico, Venezuela and other countries. In addition to playing guitar, Blane will also play a variety of instruments including the melodica, the cuatro (a small 8 stringed Puerto Rican guitar), and a two tiered Echo harmonica. Blane Bostock currently lives in Bryn Athyn, PA.
