The Scotch Bonnets are punky reggae rockers from Baltimore, Maryland. Their sound is an infectious blend of Jamaican-inspired grooves with American rock and R&B stylings. The Scotch Bonnets' leader and visionary is Lady Hatchet a.k.a. Kristin Forbes. A formidable triple threat as lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter, she leads a seasoned sextet of three men and three women drawn from the Mid-Atlantic music scene.
Since the band’s founding in 2009, the Scotch Bonnets have cut their teeth in collaborations with HR of Bad Brains and Roddy Radiation of The Specials. Early triumphs led to local headlining shows and opening slots for touring acts including The English Beat, Fishbone, The Slackers, The Toasters, The Suicide Machines, The Pietasters, and The Aggrolites.
The show, sponsored by our friends at Heavy Riff, will be free for all to attend. All ages are welcome! Music will start at 5:00 pm in the park on August 18, 2022!
