Why the name SpringHouse Revival? 

 

The answer is two fold really. 

The short answer is that we began  recording at Morningstar Studios which was then located in the town of Springhouse,  in Montgomery County, PA.  

The longer version includes the addition of "revival"... 

We originally called ourselves simply "SpringHouse" but soon learned that there were other musical acts with media presence that performed and recorded under the same name. We went online and challenged fans and  friends to help us distinguish our name from other artists. 

We went through  dozens of ideas, including dropping the "springhouse" altogether until one  suggestion came through to add  "revival". This  struck a chord, so to speak. Both Gordon and I had left behind our individual musical aspirations from younger years to a certain extent. We brought them "back to life" when we formed our writing partnership. 

Also, much of our  work has a folky twist that is echoed and enhanced by the revival of classic rock and 70's singer songwriter genres that influence our songs. 

And so, here we are, SpringHouse Revival ( don't forget that capital "H")

Ever wonder what a springhouse is? Here is a good youtube video that explains the history of a Pennsylvania springhouse

 

Spring house

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the structure. For other uses, see Spring House (disambiguation).

spring house, or springhouse, is a small building, usually of a single room, constructed over a spring. While the original purpose of a springhouse was to keep the spring water clean by excluding fallen leaves, animals, etc., the enclosing structure was also used for refrigeration before the advent of ice delivery and, later, electric refrigeration. The water of the spring maintains a constant cool temperature inside the spring house throughout the year. Food that would otherwise spoil, such as meat, fruit, or dairy products, could be kept there, safe from animal depredations as well.[citation needed]

In settings where no natural spring is available, another source of natural running water, such as a small creek or diverted portion of a larger creek, might be used. In addition, some people put jars of milk in a bucket suspended by a rope in an "open-mouth" well during hot weather.[citation needed]

The Tomahawk Spring spring house at Tomahawk, West Virginia, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.[1]
