Matt Arthur & The Bratlanders

Rootsy rock & roll and old-time country-gospel blues from southern Minnesota's distinctively-bearded Matt Arthur & The Bratlanders

Thursday, June 14th, 2018
8:00 – 10:00 pm / Skinner Memorial Chapel tent

Matt Arthur is a Southern Minnesota blind man with a voice that calls to mind Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, and Nick Cave. The Bratlanders bring a hand-wrought authenticity to their rootsy sound — a Weird Old American blend of rustic folk, old-time gospel blues, early country-western, indie dirges, and bombastic rock & roll.

Matt Arthur & The Bratlanders wear their influences [Cash, Hank, Stones, Dylan, Gram, Leadbelly] proudly, but what they make of that inspiration is entirely their own creation.
