This session features Joni Magdalene, a Philadelphia Queen, who enjoys a long walk with her Standard Poodle, an acoustic open mic, and a vegan carrot cake. Joni does a story/singing time that will interest the toddler set but also has a beautiful message for all of us. This program is recommended for all ages in this month of Pride!!

She performs throughout Philly and is known for her live vocals, guitar playing, and activism.  In 2019, Joni became Philadelphia’s Miss Sobriety, a title that she is extremely proud of.  Joni loves fellowship with friends, tea, and of course, reading a good story. Timothy Quinn, also known as Joni, is a native New Yorker now living in the city of Brotherly Love.  He is a self taught guitarist and vocalist who is inspired by the art of Folk Music and Story Telling.  He performs throughout Philly and New York City in coffee shops, pubs, and homes.  With a bit of old soul and a taste for the classics, Tim enjoys connecting with his audience through music.  He believes music sessions are a time to connect with friends and to make new ones.
