Broken Down Suitcase will play The Royal November 3.

Broken Down Suitcase will entertain the audience at The Royal next weekend with their unique blend of Americana, blues, folk, and indie-rock. Consisting of New Zealand native Ben Caldwell and Eric Larocque, hailing from Toronto, the band is looking forward to visiting Fernie again.

“We love coming down and playing in Fernie as it has such a rich arts community,” said Caldwell. “With many great photographers, artists, and other bands like Shred Kelly coming out of there, Fernie is doing something right.”

Through the use of time-honoured instruments, including acoustic guitar, banjo, and harmonica, Broken Down Suitcase’s material is etched with stories and personal meaning. Caldwell remarked, “Both Eric and I have such a wide rage of influences and we’ve always wanted to incorporate all these different styles in our sound.”

After four years and upwards of 1,000 shows, Broken Down Suitcase finally released their first full length, self-titled album this spring. Following a summer spent touring Europe, the boys are ready to spend winter in B.C. and Alberta, stopping into as many towns as they can.

Broken Down Suitcase will take the stage at The Royal November 3.
