Event Details


Salisbury House is excited to announce our second concert in our partnership with HomeDitty. Don't miss 'THE WELL PENNIES," a Folk/Pop duo consisting of husband and wife team, Bryan & Sarah Vanderpool. The pair met in Boston while supporting each other’s solo sets at folk venues around the New England area. They fell in love, ran away to California and released their debut self-titled EP that was met with critical acclaim from the Los Angeles music scene. Taking influence from 60’s & 70’s folk and pop icons like THE CARPENTERSJAMES TAYLOR, & CAROLE KING, the pair combine their signature pop melodies and tight harmonies with beautifully produced lush arrangements. The band explains, “Our goal is to write songs that inspire something – however simple – to smile, to love, to get out and experience life.”

  • Over 30 Million streams on Spotify and Apple Music.

  • Billboard magazine editor Gary Trust named their album in his top 3 favorite albums of the year.

  • The Well Pennies toured as the opening act for Diana Krall’s Turn Up the Quiet world tour and played some of the most prestigious venues in the country.

  • Their song “Drive” won first prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and was nominated for best album and best album art at the Independent Music Awards.
