Ryan Tennis

In partnership with the Philadelphia Folksong Society, the National Constitution Center presents two lunchtime concerts featuring Philadelphia-based, internationally touring singer-songwriter Ryan Tennis. In conjunction with The 1968 Exhibit on view at the Center, Tennis will perform music from 1968—a pivotal year in American music, politics, and culture. The charming authenticity of Ryan Tennis’ sound has drawn comparisons to Paul Simon, Bill Withers, and Martin Sexton, surprising likenesses for an All-American college football player turned singer-songwriter. He has toured venues around the world; twice appeared in support of Grammy winner Shawn Colvin; performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival; and become a regular on independent radio including Philadelphia’s nationally syndicated WXPN. The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia is a hands-on museum, national town hall, and civic education headquarters celebrating the United States Constitution and the story of “We the People.” Learn more at constitutioncenter.org. The Philadelphia Folksong Society (PFS) has teamed up with partner organizations around Philadelphia to launch the Philadelphia Music Co-op (PMC), which offers showcase, networking, promotion, gig booking, and distribution opportunities for member artists.
