Pert Near Sandstone

This Minnesota quintet has been making high-energy, foot-stomping string band music (complete with percussion from a clogger) for over a decade. They founded the Blue Ox Festival, have appeared at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and since their last visit to our studio did their first tour of Europe. We caught up with them when they joined us in the studio on November 15; they performed later the same night at the NorShor Theatre in Duluth with dobro legend Jerry Douglas and Useful Jenkins.

  Mojo and Bob & Blue Ox Music Festival are excited to present a special night of bluegrass and roots music at the NorShor Theatre in Duluth, MN on Friday, November 15th. You're not going to want to miss this one.

Pert Near Sandstone will be fiddling, picking and stomping throughout the night. They sold out the last time they played NorShor in 2018 with Charlie Parr.

Jerry Douglas, 13-time Grammy winner and one of the world's greatest dobro players, will take the stage solo but is rumored to join Pert Near Sandstone during their performance.

In its nearly 10-year history, this Minneapolis bluegrass group has released several albums, performed everywhere from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival to A Prairie Home Companion, and even founded their own festival, Blue Ox.

On their new album Discovery of Honey, founding member Ryan Young of Trampled by Turtles re-joins them. We found out more about the album when they stopped by our studios on November 11, 2016 in advance of their CD release show the same night at the Red Herring Lounge in Duluth.
