Wilmington State Parks - AFTYN - (Indie/Folk) at 6:30 PM

A simplistic indie/folk duo, AFTYN are hellbent on keeping it personal. Comprised of members Guinnevere Philipp and Chris Maher, AFTYN aims to evoke an updated 70’s folk sound, blended with both classic and alternative influences. Soothing melodies and raw instrumentation are the core of the duo, who self describe themselves as ‘modern hippies’. Their approach to live shows is uniquely down to earth, keeping their setup stripped back so they can engage the crowd with their relaxed, folk-driven sound. The duo is currently writing their next EP which will continue their journey.
