Pert Near Sandstone

Pert Near Sandstone first gathered around a microphone in a Minneapolis basement to record their debut album more than a decade ago and since that time, they have cemented their status as linchpins of the Midwestern acoustic scene with energized interpretations of the traditional old-time sound. As co-founders and hosts of the Blue Ox Music Festival, Pert Near Sandstone has helped grow the 3-day event into an annual pilgrimage for roots music fans across the country and has featured some of the scene’s most cherished artists like Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, Del McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Peter Rowan, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Tyler Childers, Margo Price, Trampled by Turtles, Greensky Bluegrass, and many more. Blue Ox 2020 marks a momentous occasion for Pert Near Sandstone as they will be releasing their 7th studio album during the festival.
