Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Music News Release, 9-3-2014
Mankato, Minn. – Steve Kaul and The Brass Kings will perform Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave.
Kaul is a songwriter steeped in the traditional story-songs of American folk music and is a finger-style guitarist with an ear for world music influences. The Brass Kings play their old-time instruments in unconventional ways. Metal-bodied resophonic guitar, washtub bass, washboard and fiddle chart the bermuda triangle of old-time, world and experimental music from jug-band swing to wild improvisational ragas.
The Brass Kings perform a unique combination of music, one that sounds like very little of what gets labeled “Americana” in today’s music. They are currently touring in support of their latest 12” vinyl release, "Machine."
Concert admission is $12; $11 for students with a valid MavCard. Discount tickets are available online for University students. Advance purchase is strongly encouraged.
