VIENNA — The Vienna Union Hall will host the Porch Party Mamas, a group of dynamic women from the Boston area, at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 23.

Inspired by playing and singing their songs at their own porch parties, the musicians and singer/songwriters decided to create their brand of urban folk, country and blues.

The members are Felicia Brady, who wields an accordion and is an accomplished singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with two CDs to her name, “Magazine Street” and “Pretty Soon.”

Jane Grondin, who took up Celtic fiddling and learned Irish & Scottish fiddling styles, eventually made her way back to her singer/songwriter roots by becoming the newest member of the Porch Party Mamas.

Ksenia Mack has opened for Willie Nelson, Indigo Girls, Warren Zevon, Marc Cohn, Robert Cray, The Guess Who and Poundstone.

Katrin Peterson, a powerful percussionist who integrates the powerful rhythms of South America with the necessities of American folk music. She has performed extensively and has appeared on radio and TV including “The Late Show.”

Kelly Riley sings and plays guitar and bass. She has opened for Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett. Songs from her first CD, “Live and You Learn,” have been featured nationally and internationally on TV programs.
