Pert Near Sandstone

Jul 22
Thursday, July 22 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Crossing old-time instrumentation with contemporary sensibilities, Minneapolis based Pert Near Sandstone have established themselves as standard-bearers for the versatility and vitality of the Midwestern roots music scene. The band has performed from the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival to A Prairie Home Companion, and shared bills on the road with the likes of Trampled By Turtles, Del McCoury, and Yonder Mountain String Band. NPR’s The Current praised their live performances as “a frenzied string shredding spree that takes audiences under its spell.” The group’s new album, Rising Tide, defies the conventional boundaries of string band music, mixing punk rock energy with Celtic traditionalism and bluegrass virtuosity, with fierce and self-assured lyrics to match.
