MANKATO, Minn. – Nationally recognized multi-instrumentalist Noah Hoehn (pictured) will perform Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. in Minnesota State University, Mankato's Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave.

Hoehn has transformed his love of the harmonica into a one-man showcase of musical skill. Hoehn has boldly combined acoustic instruments with the technologies of live looping, MIDI programming and automated mixing into a distinct and cohesive sound.

Hoehn records single layers of harmonica, marimba, rhythm tracks and vocals in his looping system, allowing his audiences to experience the construction of a complete song. Zen-like concentration and blues-inspired expression help make Hoehn’s performances original every time he steps on stage.

Hoehn is a two-time recipient of the prestigious McKnight Artist Fellowship for Performing Musicians. In 2007, Hoehn played harmonica in the Minnesota Opera’s world premier production of “The Grapes of Wrath” at the Ordway Theatre in St. Paul, Minn.

Recently, he appeared with the regional super-group, the “Radio Specialists,” at the Orpheum Theatre in Sioux Falls. Noah’s solo performances include appearances on Minnesota Public Radio and National Public Radio.
