Darlingtyn (Saturday)

Emerging Artist Showcase Band

Winners of Charm City Bluegrass Band Contest


Darlingtyn is the love child of Philadelphia musicians Jack Shoudy and Emily MacDonald.

Their unique style of Americana and “real Philly folk with outstanding original songs” (City Island Music, 2/1/18) has made them a rising act in the Philadelphia folk and jam communities.

“Swiftly gaining steam as one of Philly’s artists-to-watch within both Folk & Jam scenes” (MilkBoy, 10/31/17), Darlingtyn has shared the stage with Ryan Montbleau, Andy Frasco, Zach Deputy, Jennifer Hartswick (of Trey Anastasio Band), Zach Nugent, Roots of Creation, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Steal Your Peach, and Nicholas Cassarino (of The Nth Power). Mixing deeply personal lyrics, vocal harmonies, and a cosmic take on the folk tradition, Darlingtyn brings a unique and powerful new sound to the jam and Americana scenes.

Rising organically from the relationship between Jack and Emily, Darlingtyn has been a consistent presence in the Southeastern Pennsylvanian folk scene since 2012. From the saloons and coffee houses of the east coast to Summer Camp Music Festival and beyond, Darlingtyn’s music has brought together audiences and musicians from folk, jam, and jazz scenes.
