Blog: Chickabiddy–Wait, What?

Chickabiddy at JalopyDirector of Or, Aaron Cromie is a man of many talents. He’s a designer, a puppeteer, actor, and when not confined to the theatre, he’s on the stage as a musician. His band, Chickabiddy, has been gaining accolades lately in Philadelphia. With Emily Schuman on vocals and guitar, and Cromie on vocals and mandolin, this band brings folk music to the Philly stage:
Hello friends,
I am happy to announce that my duo Chickabiddy has been selected to perform in a Singer/Songwriter Showcase at Philly’s famous Trocadero on March 12, 5.30pm for a 5-6 song set, along with several other up and coming bands.
Emily and I are hoping that you’ll come and see us perform in such a beautiful and storied venue. Tickets are $16 and are available from Emily and I directly, as each ticket we sell, we see a return on – we have a personal goal of tickets we’d like to distribute, and we hope you’ll come on out and support us. You’ll get to see a lot of music, and it won’t be too late a night!
For those working in theatre that day – we’d be playing right at 5.30pm (as Aaron is in tech for a show and is playing on his break!) so you could catch Chickabiddy between your shows.
Additionally, we’ve been busy writing a bunch of new material, and will shortly begin to record our first EP, and have plans to do a short tour outside of Philly in the summertime.
Also, for those who haven’t yet seen, Chickabiddy submitted a video (shot by for the NPR Tiny Desk Concert Competition – it is attached for your viewing pleasure – we hope you enjoy it!
If you are interested, we ask you get your tickets sooner than later, please. Email them at
