I want to find places in the Philadelphia area that really support classical guitar. If you know of restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores or anyplace that have live classical guitar pass the info on.
I stumbled on this place a few weeks ago:

Langhorne, Pennsylvania 19047
Phone: (215) 702-9600
Friday night’s classical guitarist Robert Schulze plays from 5pm- 9pm. Visit Robert’s website:rtsguitar.com
It’s a great night out; Robert is an excellent guitarist and the food is really really good. Friday night you can BYOB. All the more enticing and well worth any travel time to get to Langhorne.
Tickets available at the door:
General: $25; Student/Senior: $15; Member: $10
Christopher Wilke developed a love for music early in life. As a child he began to compose music before he’d even learned to play an instrument. He went on to study guitar and composition at the College of Mt. St. Joseph followed by a Master’s degree in classical guitar from the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music. He recently completed his doctorate in Early Music Performance at the Eastman School of Music under renowned lutenist, Paul O’Dette. He now teaches at Nazareth College in Rochster, NY. Dr. Wilke has performed widely in both Europe and the U.S. He has done live on-air performances and interviews for WGUC, WNKU and WVXU radio stations where his recordings were also featured. Notable appearances include a performance with the Columbus (Ohio) Symphony Orchestra and solo concerts at the European Lute Festival in Fuessen, Germany and the Lute Society of America’s 2010 Festival.
