Winter Wind Concert - The Suitcase Junket

Matt Lorenz [The Suitcase Junket] was raised in Cavendish, Vermont. He learned to sing by copying his sister Kate. Lorenz graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 2004, having taught himself to throat-sing, inspired by a South Indian cooking class. On moving day, he pulled a guitar, filled with mold and worse for wear, from a dorm dumpster. He fixed it up and started pulling songs out of it. That was the beginning. Since then, The Suitcase Junket has built a powerful fan base in his native New England and far beyond, playing numerous festivals and winning awards. His music puts him in the company of artists working the border of Americana and rock -- Shovels & Rope, M. Ward, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Sam Amidon, Alabama Shakes, and The Record Company.

Winter Wind Concert - The Matchsellers

Since 2013, Andrew Morris and Julie Bates, better known as the Matchsellers, have traveled the US and Europe developing their style of off the wall bluegrass & old-time music. In 2017 they began collaborating with Chad Graves and Betsey Mae, two of the Midwest’s finest musicians. (Graves is one of the country’s top dobro players and Mae is a sought after bassist from Lakin, KS.) Together the 4-piece combines absurdity, authenticity and excellent musicianship to create a performance that is representative of the present age: They are pleasantly stuck between the years gone-by and those to come.

She is again touring the world to share the songs of her latest album, Blink, her fourth full-length studio album. The 11-song collection of new originals is equally inspired by soul, folk and southern rock -- and the summer when she was 17.

A Christmas Story The Musical

Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash written by Jean Shepherd.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!! This musical, which received rave reviews on its Broadway run, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: Ralphie's friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit; the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others. The delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping full-ensemble numbers such as "Ralphie to the Rescue!", "A Major Award," "Sticky Situation," "Up on Santa's Lap," "Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana" and the inevitable "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!" A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven't.

Winter Wind Concert - Ryanhood


The acoustic-duo, Ryanhood, featuring Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals and Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, together with their airtight vocal harmonies, prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them, “a match made in radio heaven.” Ryanhood was named ‘Best Group/Duo’ in the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards and they were recently named the “Discovery of the Year” by John Platt at WFUV New York City. They were a featured act at Australia’s National Folk Festival in April 2018. And their star is still on the rise. Their sixth and newest album, Yearbook, is led by their signature two-part vocal harmonies, decorated with flares of guitar, ukulele, and mandolin, and centers on songs about being young, growing old, and making peace with the passing of time.

Winter Wind Concert - Seth Glier

Winter Wind Concert - Seth Glier

Seth Glier’s fifth album, Birds, is the latest entry in a burgeoning career that has included a Grammy nomination and a pair of Independent Music Awards while touring with artists including Ani DiFranco and Ryan Adams. The songs on Birds range from personal to political, and are bound together by the awareness that our world is a fragile place that is all the more magical for it. Glier (pronounced “Gleer”) recorded Birds in an airy loft in western Massachusetts outfitted with a grand piano and floor-to-ceiling windows. Birds roosting just outside those windows, became his sympathetic audience while Glier made the album. “I felt a tremendous amount of comfort talking to the Birds,” he says “I’d check in with them regularly to see how they thought things were going so far.” Seth Glier was selected as the Member’s Choice Concert for Winter Wind by vote of Depot Members.

Winter Wind Concert - The Brother Brothers


“The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They tour as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. With individual storied music careers under their belts, the brothers have finally teamed up to bring their experiences together. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements.
