Slip into your Vintage Pajamas and chase the feeling of dreaming with The Hum’n’bards. With their trademark queer rock style, The Hum’n’bards explore this 24 hour world - with underground Sleepeasies and flood lights blotting out each star in the sky.

Pangaea: A Folk Opera
The Official Soundtrack!
We know it's been a while, but making your first soundtrack takes a lot of work and our team is small but mighty!
"Pangaea: A Folk Opera" debuted in the 2016 Philadelphia Fringe Festival. This was our first production that helped create The Hum'n'Bards. Pangaea tells many stories of what life would be life if the earth split everyone up into their own little continent, and what those people would do with their feelings.
This album is available for as little as ZERO dollars, but you can pay as much as you'd like. Donations will help us with this year's Fringe Productions "God, Forgive These Bastards". The money goes towards stipends for the team, costumes, props, rehearsal space, and marketing needs.
In 2012 Wyatt Flynn and Jasmine Kojouri were living together in an artist community, and spent their days spitballing ideas for a theater company that devised original musicals.
Flash forward to 2016, where Wyatt and Taylor Plunkett-Clements worked together in a gelato shop in Philadelphia. Taylor spent many shifts sharing her ideas and dreams of performing, while Wyatt scrawled out lyrics on receipt paper. Jasmine was living across the country in Las Vegas, but the group wanted to collaborate despite the distance. Wyatt had an idea for a show, and with a swift kick in the butt from Taylor, and Jasmine’s ability to direct in an unconventional creation process, the group created Pangaea.
The show was inspired by our once united continent that is now dispersed into the many continents we know today. It explored how we connect over distance and time, and is the foundation of what would become The Hum’n’bards.
In September of 2016, The Hum'n'Bards made their debut in the Philadelphia Fringe Festival with Pangaea.
We at the Hum'n'bards believe that art needs to be accessible to people, regardless of financial ability. Therefore, we do not require people to pay to see our shows, but we do invite them to pay as much or as little as they feel is appropriate.
