RELIVE THE BLUE OX

WITH

PERT NEAR SANDSTONE


What can we say. If it was not for Pert Near Sandstone this festival may have never started. They have played more sets at the festival than any other band, and have created countless memories in the process. Relive them here.

It was roughly a decade ago that Pert Near Sandstone first gathered around a microphone in a Minneapolis basement to record their debut album, Up And Down The River. So much has happened since then: highs and lows, personal struggles and artistic triumphs, new faces and new sounds. The winding road they’ve traveled over the years makes it all the more meaningful for the band…

That chemistry has been abundantly clear from the very first days of Pert Near Sandstone, when the band—whose current lineup features Sipe and Kniebel, founding guitarist J Lenz, bassist Justin Bruhn, and clog & fiddle player Matt Cartier—burst onto the American roots music scene in a flurry of fiddling, picking, and stomping. They followed their debut record with a string of four critically acclaimed albums that had No Depression hailing them as “stellar” and The Minneapolis Star Tribune praising their songs as “masterfully and jubilantly plucked.” NPR’s Mountain Stage celebrated the band’s “Midwestern stamp on Appalachian [sounds],” while The Current described their live performances as “a frenzied string shredding spree that takes audiences under its spell.”
