Live Thursday, May 16th between 11am & Noon: The Suitcase Junket

May 14, 2019

Matt Lorenz, a.k.a. The Suitcase Junket, is a one-man-band of guitar & drums, plus an arsenal of instruments built of broken bottles, thrift store forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, salvaged instruments, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage. The New Englander is known for  his "lo-fi, low-tuned, low-down blast of end-times folk blues. Matt Lorenz ... incants and intones like a cross between Hound Dog Taylor and a Tuvan throat singer who has swallowed a bird. Take the singer-songwriter idiom, give it a low grade fever and a guitar and this is what you get. Captivating, mesmerizing, and gone ... real gone." -- (Frank De Blase, Rochester (NY) City Newspaper) He's part of the Songsmith Gathering lineup this Saturday at the Brevard Music Center.
