A furniture maker by day, Scranton native Mr. Zezesk cut his teeth in punk and ska bands as a teenager, eventually leaving home to hop trains and ride the rails with his Epiphone Hummingbird guitar in tow. Together, they have opened for acts such Woody Pines, the Hackensaw Boys, YARN, Jubilee Riots, and Gallows Bound. Tickets $15; free for children 12 and younger with adults.
