Monday, July 26th will be a night full of true legends at The 7th Street Entry and believe me when I say you won’t want to miss this show!
Musical missionary, tireless troubadour and producer Jack Klatt isn’t one to be easily categorized or relegated to a narrow niche. He comes across as a young man with a wizened and worldly perspective, an artist who possesses a timeless sensibility of both place and purpose. Yet, his artistic integrity extends to more than simply his songs. It embodies both execution and intent… the way he’s mastered his deft finger-picking technique and used that sturdy approach to bring his material an authenticity reminiscent of the most revered musicians and storytellers.
For all the moonlighting he’s done in other genres over the years, Carl Nichols (AKA Buffalo Nichols) always comes back to the blues. At various points in his career, Nichols has played gospel (despite being an atheist), West African music (despite being born and raised in Milwaukee), and, as one half of the acclaimed folk duo Nickel & Rose, Americana (despite having some deep reservations about that genre’s long history of appropriating black music without always welcoming black musicians). None of those gigs, however, extinguished his desire to play the kind of traditional, acoustic blues he grew up admiring.
Local Faith Boblett will be kicking the night off. Faith Boblett is a Minneapolis singer-songwriter with roots in northern Minnesota. She began writing her own music at the age of thirteen, shortly after teaching herself to play the guitar. Though Faith was raised in a musical household, she has been persistent in finding her own voice through songwriting and performing. Her goal? Timeless songs.
