TSI’s veteran photog and contributor, Don McGurin will on-site in Scranton, PA this Saturday to bring you coverage of the Susquehanna Breakdown Music Fest. Pennsylvania Bluegrass band, Cabinet, began this festival tradition last spring. This year’s fest features one day of music with Cabinet and a few of their friends on stage at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain, but offers a full weekend of camping (RV or tents), bike trails and excisions, unique vendors, and more.
See below for more info on the fest, lineup, and how to purchase tickets. Stay tuned for coverage on TSI! 
Continuing in the “named after a Cabinet song” tradition, this year’s festival, scheduled for May 10th, has been named the SUSQUEHANNA BREAKDOWN MUSIC FESTIVAL. Taking the name from a track on the band’s most recent album, a nearby river, and a noisy, energetic American country dance, 2014’s fest promises to be even bigger and better than the last.There are many new additions and highlights to the festival this year such as more performing artists, a second stage, more craft and food vendors, family friendly camping (on the pavilion lawn!), and much more. Concertgoers can arrive 5pm on Friday, May 9 to camp on the picturesque Montage Mountain and enjoy an intimate, evening performance on the lawn by Cabinet and a few of their friends!

Celebrated sons of Northeast Pennsylvania, Cabinet has long outgrown the “local band” label while remaining loyal to their regional fans. The six piece bluegrass / Americana outfit has been busy touring the United States to promote their second studio album, Leap and their most current live release, This Is Cabinet – Set II (both on Ropeadope Records). The Susquehanna Breakdown Music Festival is a highly anticipated homecoming to this local venue.
