Pert Near Sandstone

Founded in 2003 by four childhood friends from Minneapolis / St. Paul, Minnesota, Pert’ Near Sandstone’s chemistry harkens back to the family bands of the past, playing American string band music that melds old-time sensibilities with modern song craft. Gathered around a single microphone, they deliver their unique brand of string band music to fans across generations and genres all over the world, playing with infectious energy and an undeniable joy, cutting straight to the heart. Tireless stewards of the mid-west roots music community, they also write new songs that sound like they’ve always been with us. The band is also a proud co-founder and host of the Blue Ox Music Festival. The band is putting the final touches on the their next full length record that’s expected to arrive later this year.
