The Moldy Suitcases is a tribute to the underground music of 1920’s. The Suitcases are an original band that resuscitates long lost hits from over the decades. Kelsey holds the front with lead vocals and her bluesy "Can" solos. In addition, Tom Poitras showcases his unique flair for the guitar on both ukulele and banjolele. Greg holds the groove on upright bass while drummer, washboard player, suitcase specialist, and all around percussionist Tom O’Leary adds the stomp and clank that rounds out the sound of this quirky crew.
Seating is on the grass- bring a blanket or lawn chair and arrive 15 minutes prior to the performance to ensure a place to park and time to make your way down to the quarry meadow. Use Hazard Road entrance. FREE
