The sound of Old Man Kelly comes broadly from the early days of American roots music – when bluesmen sang from front porches on hot afternoons, when swing bands played dances in speakeasies late into the night, when being an American troubadour was a trade. Since the 2013 release of "Songs, Stories, Shanties and Shenanigans," Old Man Kelly has gigged relentlessly, bringing his vintage sound to over 300 swing dances, festivals and honky-tonks throughout the central Appalachian mountains.
He brings his music to the Crystal Coast Civic Center on Saturday, Oct. 14, thanks to the Down East Folk Arts Society. General admission is $16; members, $13; and students, $10. Doors open at 6:30pm. Learn more by visiting www.downeastfolkarts.org.
