Cassidy & the Orleans Kids

Cassidy Holden is a musician specializing in double bass, guitar, and banjo. He has been playing BSC events such as the Roaring Twenties Lawn Party for the last 5-6 years, on our Casino Stage, as well as leading Florence’s Glad Rags Strut & Stroll procession up Castle Hill and back down. Which is to say, he can play and walk at the same time! If you’re new to BSC, he likely won’t be playing and walking, but he will be delivering us with some fine swing tune mojo via New Orleans, where he also lived for the last several years.


We will have limited attendance capacity and will require all attendees to show proof of full vaccination and to wear masks the entire time they are in the venue (including while dancing!) We recommend testing your mask in advance to ensure that you are able to move and breathe in it without it falling down. In addition to required masking, we will have windows open and fans running throughout.
