The dynamic cello-guitar duo of Aaron Nathans & Michael G. Ronstadt pushes the boundaries of folk music. They were named Best of Philly Folk Fest by Philly CityPaper in 2015.
“Like hydrogen atoms when they fuse, they release tremendous energy. Musically, they come from different worlds. Aaron is a clever songwriter whose greatest strength is his wit and use of language. Michael is a conservatory trained cello virtuoso who reveals a winning playfulness when he performs… They take your mind places it has not been before.”
– John Apice, No Depression
In 2012 we started "Live at The Upstream," a music series bringing the Rivertowns' Art and Music communities closer together.
We program live music, from rock to jazz to classical. We thank all the artists in these communities who have made the series
such a success.

Efrat is a professional violinist, violist, singer, arranger and composer. She was concertmaster for Olivia Newton John Orchestras, and toured 47 states and Canada as an onstage violinist in the Broadway touring company of Oliver. Efrat was the fiddler for alt-roots (and Yonkers-based) ensemble Spuyten Duyvil for a few years and has worked with and recorded for other bands, including Bobtown, Sebastien Kole, pop-icon Ashanti, and many more. The songs on Efrat’s sophomore release, The Silver Lining, are a blend of many styles – including folk, jazz, pop, klezmer, swing, and blues. Their lyrics and structure are a testament to finding strength during the trials of life and leaning on those around you for help.
“…Efrat is the consummate musician. A classically-trained violinist, she’s comfortable in multiple genres, from jazz to Americana. At one time a member of Spuyten Duyvil, she now fronts her own group, showcasing her talents as a singer, songwriter, and performer…”
