Kind Country!

November 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Kind music for kind people. Kind Country is a Minneapolis based band that plays American
standards as well as their own brand of Cosmic American music. Since their formation in
2012, the band has focused on creating live performances with high levels of improvisation
and energy gathering with a goal of creating a moment of musical bliss that can be shared by
audience members and band alike.
Kind Country released their debut self titled album “Kind Country” in the fall of 2013. Since then
they have been bringing their music on the road playing live performances at theaters, bars,
auditoriums, festivals, and everywhere in between all throughout the United States. The band
released their second independently released full length album, Hwy 7, in the fall of 2015.
Produced by Ryan Young of Trampled by Turtles, Hwy 7, thrust the band further into a regional
spotlight. The guys quickly followed up with a 5 track studio EP, Mountains, which was
released in the spring of 2017. The band has no plans of stopping and will be releasing new
material on a regular basis for the foreseeable future.
“Snagging the last spot and rounding out our not-very-extensive list is Kind Country, the
Minneapolis-based jamgrass band forged in 2012. Originally started as a four-piece string
band, the band expanded into six-member ensemble featuring Mitch Johnson (guitar), Brandon
Johnson (guitar), Max Graham (mandolin), Joe Sheehan (bass), Chris Forsberg (violin),
and Chris Wittrock (drums). These guys have some thing special going on, with the addition of
drums allowing the group to go deeper in exploring how bluegrass can morph and intersect
with other genres and giving them the freedom to create a sound that is truly their own.
However, they still stay true to their string-band origins and bluegrass roots, with their energetic
playing and the talent among the six players more-or-less guaranteeing a foot-stompin’ good
time.”- Ming Lee Newcomb, Live for Live Music. From article Five Up and Coming Bluegrass
Bands Poised to Take Over the Scene.
