Jack Klatt, Brad Parsons & more at Live
Live From The Divide continues to host intimate performances in April, celebrating the lineage and contemporary voice of the American Roots singer/songwriter. Here’s a look at just a few of the upcoming acts.
Minneapolis-based Jack Klatt is set for Thursday, April 27th at 9pm. Tickets are $25 plus fees with doors at 8pm.
Part balladeer and part bluesman, Klatt is a dedicated songwriter and finger-style guitarist. His unique sound defies genre with influences that pull from a wide range of American music. From rhythm and blues and early rock ‘n’ roll to country and folk music, Klatt brings his unique voice to all of his songs. In the word of Americana Roots UK, “Jack doesn’t rely on other writers for his diversity, he can write in pretty much any musical style of his choosing.” His latest album, Shadows in the Sunset, was released in 2016.
Check out Brad Parsons on Friday, April 28th at 9pm. Tickets are $20 plus fees with doors at 8pm.
The Portland-based singer/songwriter has been enrapturing audiences across the country with his almost unreal powerhouse voice and his genre-bending blend of psychedelic rock and Americana. His songs and style aim to hit you right in your chest and his big voice goes for your gut. He begs you to sing, shout, dance, laugh and cry with him with songs that sound like standards but are wholly unique to his own style. It’s not just his steadily growing fan base that knows that he’s got something special going on. His album Hold True just released in February.
Live From The Divide, “A Celebration of The American Songwriter,” is broadcasted Mondays at 6pm on public radio station KGLT 91.9 and 97.1. The 50-seat venue is located inside of a commercial recording studio where the audience has the unique opportunity to be a part of a live recording and sit just feet away from singer/songwriters as they perform and share stories. The style of music you can expect to experience is conveniently lumped into the Americana genre. Which is simply an amalgam of American roots music formed by the confluence of shared and varied sounds merged from folk, country, blues, rhythm and blues, and rock ‘n’ roll. If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend a live taping, you’ve got plenty of chances with these upcoming shows.
Tickets are sold at the door, but these small shows are known to sell out quickly — so buy your tickets early! Tickets are available in-store at Cactus Records or www.cactusrecords.net/. Live From The Divide is located at 627 E. Peach St. in Bozeman. Visit www.livefromthedivide.com/ for a full lineup of performances and further information. •
