Old Cold Tater is a trio of accomplished and versatile musicians, Dana King and Jay and Laurie Keefe. Long time bandmate, Fran Clark, joins the trio for selected engagements. They enjoy their friendship as they travel a musical journey shaped by each other's changing musical tastes and experiences.
Affectionately known as the "Taters" by their fans, the original band was founded in Gloucester, MA around 1976. Grounded firmly in American Roots Music, an Old Cold Tater performance might feature Bluegrass, Fiddle tunes, Swing, Old Time, Celtic, Blues and original songs - - all with a common acoustic instrumentation, stemming from such diverse influences as Bob Wills, The Chieftans, Bill Monroe and Leadbelly. Old Cold Tater’s sound continues to evolve today.

Old Cold Tater's travels have included many festivals, schools, clubs, churches, shows and radio throughout New England, Virgin Islands and Japan. In 2010, Old Cold Tater was the host band for the 2010 Essex Music Festival in Essex, Massachusetts, an acoustic Americana music festival now in its 19th year.
