Northeastern Pennsylvania’s own agents of Americana, Cabinet, have announced, in conjunction with the F.M. Kirby Center, their hometown plans for the holidays.

The six-piece jamgrass outfit will perform at 9 p.m. Dec. 31 on the main stage of the downtown Wilkes-Barre theater, 71 Public Square.

According to a press release from the venue, “Cabinet is a band with roots firmly planted in the Appalachian tradition. They wear their influences like badges, honoring the canon of roots, bluegrass, country and folk, weaving these sounds into a patchwork Americana quilt. But this music isn’t romanticizing or rehashing the past. Cabinet makes its mark on today. The steady aim of their harmonies soar straight onto target each time, the soaring vocals giving voice to the story of each song. Their music takes the long way home, treating its listeners like passengers on a ride through scenic back roads. Their live shows are inclusive, celebratory and community-building. Everyone will want to get on the wagon with Cabinet.”

The band’s fourth studio album, “Cool River,” will be released on Oct. 13. For a listen to their single, Bottom of the Sea,” visit Soundcloud at bit.ly/2xn1oBq.

Tickets for the New Year’s Eve performance cost $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show and go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday at the Kirby Center box office, online at kirbycenter.org and by phone at 570-826-1100.

A pre-sale for Kirby members begins at 10 a.m. Friday through the same outlets.
