Description: Al's on First presents Music on Tuesdays with Old Man Kelly on Tuesday, April 30, 2019.

Liam Kelly may be better known as Old Man Kelly and resides in Blacksburg, VA. 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.

Whether performing as a multi-instrumental one-man-band or appearing ensemble as Old Man Kelly and The Streetsweepers, it’s original music that still sounds familiar. A couple of guitars, a banjo or two, an arsenal of harmonicas, and a whole lot of guts.

Old Man Kelly is no stranger to song, but don’t call him a singer-songwriter. He’s been around the block more times than he can count, taking laps past punk rock, Irish music, Appalachian old-time, alt-country, nautical music, and French chansons. The arsenal is vast — banjo, guitar, accordion, drums, harmonica, fiddle, and kazoo are all fair game.
