Ky Burt Band at beergarden!
July 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
A multi-instrumentalist (acoustic and electric guitar, five-string banjo) with a wide range of influences spanning Appalachian string music, old country, and contemporary folk, Burt pulls inspiration from a wide vocabulary of American root forms to create a sound full of stunning imagery and melodic depth. Born in the American Midwest to a long ancestry of craftsmen, farmers, and teachers, Burt has been seeding his own unique craft through the art of song since childhood. His lyrics tell a story of miles traveled, landscapes gone by, lovers won and lost, and the search for a sense of place in an ever increasingly complex world. Time spent living in different regions of the U.S. (Appalachia, Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, and Pacific Northwest) has deeply informed his playing and songwriting, exposing Burt to numerous local and regional musical acts, and allowing him to develop an engaging, dynamic, and diverse musical style. Music has been the well-traveled suitcase he carries on his journeys.
