Attention music lovers: Jack Klatt will be playing the Orpheum in Hancock, MI on Jan 6. Jack played at the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival the past 2 years, he also played the Ontonagon Theater last year...so if you haven't caught him yet...I highly recommend that you do! The Orpheum is a great venue! 🙂 Postponed: Jack Klatt live at the Orpheum

Postponed: Jack Klatt live at the OrpheumJan 6, 8:30pmThe Orpheum TheaterI spoke with Jack and we decided to postpone his show at the Orpheum, out of respect for Kenny and the Memorial Gathering to honor him. This show had been scheduled a few months ago for this Friday, but, it turns out, it was at the same time as the Memorial Jam Session for Ken. Jack knew Kenny from the Orpheum, and shares our surprise and sadness at his sudden passing. It just wouldn't have felt right to have the show without Ken there to blow that blues harp. Watch the Orpheum page or emails for the rescheduled date.

Jack Klatt is a singer, a songwriter and a dexterous finger-style guitarist. Combining musical traditions from pre-war blues to the roots of country music, he has been touring the lower 48, spreading his take on American music. He's won recognition from the Minnesota State Arts Board, made it onto Daytrotter's list of best songs for 2014 and has opened up for the likes of Pokey LaFarge and Charlie Parr...and he even has an album featuring Charlie Parr.

check him out at:

"...clever, ragtime flavored tunes and he’s one helluva guitarist to boot. Great songs with witty lyrics and when he’s taking a break from a hard luck troubadour’s verse, he’s tickling our ears with fancy fingerpicking and note flying."
Rift Magazine

In 2009 Klatt settled down in Minneapolis, formed a band and founded the Cat Swingers. Soon enough he found himself performing around 100-150 nights a year perfecting his crafts of performance and songwriting. In 2011 Klatt received a Minnesota State Arts Grant to record a collaborative album with a number Minnesota legends including Spider John Koerner, Dakota Dave Hull, Cornbread Harris and Charlie Parr. Mississippi Roll has since garnered praise all the way from California to the UK
Adults $10, Students & Seniors $7
