About this Event

*KIND COUNTRY*

Calling Minneapolis home, Kind Country has been instrumental in bridging the gap between the local Bluegrass,

Americana, Folk, and Jam-Band scenes to create a diverse and rich blend of musical styles that refuses to fit in a

single genre’s checkbox. The high-energy improvisational creative energy of the band’s stage performance infuses

their studio albums with the intuitive and nearly telepathic connection they’ve grown famous for on stage. The

beaming smiles, joyful laughter, knowing glances, brotherly encouragement, and outpouring of love are so palpable

and genuine, their camaraderie leaves the audience begging for more. The ebb and flow of magnetic energy and

speed draws the audience closer with each guitar lick, mando pluck, and fiddle stroke.

Kind Country began spreading their kind vibes all over the countryside when they came to life in Mankato, MN

back in 2012. The seven-member ensemble features Max Graham (Mandolin/Lead vocals), Brandon Johnson

(Guitar), Joe Sheehan (Bass), Chris Forsberg (Fiddle/Backing vocals), Chris Wittrock (Drums/Backing vocals),

Mike Hedding (Banjo), and Lee Martin (Pedal Steel), who artfully blend a wealth of diverse experiences, musical

tastes, perspectives, and individuality into a colorful tapestry of sound. A full drum kit, expertly played by “Witty,”

sets Kind Country apart from the run of the mill bluegrass bands. Not to mention the momentum that builds

between Max’s melodic mandolin pickin’ alternating with Chris’ rippin’ fiddle solos, leading to a magical crescendo.

Joe thumps low and slow on bass, Lee wails on the slide, and Mike picks the banjo with expert precision. Every

musician in the band holds their own with talent to spare. Max’s artful songwriting evokes a broad range of

emotions, often drawing from his own life and dreams for the future.

*THE MIGHTY PINES*

The Mighty Pines are a soul-inspired roots rock band influenced by the wide rivers and red-brick streets of St. Louis. With soaring vocals and thoughtful composition, the two principal songwriters shift the band’s sound from catchy rock ‘n’ roll to earthy instrumentals. The Riverfront Times heralds the band as “a talented young quartet engaged in the roots and rhythms of bluegrass but mixed with a more contemporary ear for harmony and production.”

The Mighty Pines is made up of Neil Salsich (vocals, guitar), Gerard Erker (mandolin, banjo, vocals), John Hussung (bass, vocals) and Mike Murano (drums). They have released three studio albums, played hundreds of live shows across the country and shared bills with renowned acts such as JJ Grey & Mofro, The Dead South, Fruition, Sam Bush and Railroad Earth.
