Years ago, Matt Lorenz pulled a guitar out of a Dumpster. Now that guitar is the centerpiece of his one-man band, the Suitcase Junket. At his live shows, perched amid instruments fashioned from found objects — a box of bones and silverware that serves as a hi-hat, for example — the Vermont-born troubadour injects new life into the tools of his trade. “I’m interested in the hidden voices that reside within things,” Lorenz muses on his website, “the songs stuck inside instruments, the story behind the object.” A self-taught style of throat singing and a gritty mishmash of American roots sounds make for a listening experience that Tweed River Music Festival-goers will find hard to shake.


These community event listings are sponsored by the WaterWheel Foundation, a project of the Vermont band Phish.
