Pert Near Sandstone & Pixie & The Partygrass Boys at Volcanic

When: Fri., Nov. 18, 9-11:30 p.m.

Genre has always been something of a thorny issue for Pert Near Sandstone. Crossing old-time instrumentation with contemporary sensibilities, the band first emerged from Minneapolis in 2007 with its acclaimed debut, "Up and Down The River." Over the course of five more studio albums and several live releases, the group established themselves as standard-bearers for the versatility and vitality of the Midwestern roots music scene, performing onstage with the likes of Steve Martin and the Flaming Lips while earning dates along the way with everyone from Trampled By Turtles and Del McCoury to Yonder Mountain String Band and Sam Bush. NPR's Mountain Stage hailed the band for putting a "Midwestern stamp on Appalachian [sounds]," while A Prairie Home Companion described them as “a force on the Minnesota roots music scene and beyond,” and The Current praised the band's live performances as "a frenzied string shredding spree that takes audiences under its spell." Festival favorites in both the U.S. and Europe, the band launched a gathering, the Blue Ox Music Festival, in 2015, hosting Bela Fleck, Tyler Childers, Jerry Douglas, Margo Price, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, The Infamous Stringdusters, Greensky Bluegrass, Shovels & Rope, Justin Townes Earle and many more in Eau Claire, WI.
