World Renowned Blues Artist Matt Andersen to Perform in Cranbrook February 2020
Opener: Shaun Kirk from Melbourne Australia

A powerhouse performer with a giant, soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, bluesman Matt Andersen will be performing at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre on February 10th. Andersen has built a formidable following over the years the old-fashioned way: touring worldwide and letting his stunned audiences and new devotees spread the good word of his righteous tunes. AND the world has indeed woken up and discovered him, helping him amass over 18 million views on YouTube. In addition to headlining major festivals and theatres, throughout North America, Europe and Australia, Andersen has shared the stage and toured with the likes of Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Greg Allman, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Randy Bachman, Little Feat, Jonny Lang, Serena Ryder, and many more. Andersen nabbed the 2013 and 2016, European Blues Award for best Solo/Acoustic act, and 3 Maple Blues Awards in 2012, and was the very first Canadian to take home top honours in the solo/duo category at the 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Since the release of his album “Weightless” in 2014, Andersen has received a JUNO nomination for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year, a CIMA Road Gold Award, and 6 Maple Blues Awards for Male Vocalist of the Year in Canada.

Andersen’s latest release, “Halfway Home by Morning”, was recorded Live in Nashville Tennessee. This album celebrated his tenth album, and collects all the essential elements for a down home ramble, and shoots them through with enough electrifying energy to drive the rock ’n’ roll and blues faithful to shimmy and shake. Over its 13 tracks, he explores every facet of sound-sweat-soaked soul, incendiary rhythm and blues, heartbroken folk, and gritty Americana-and binds them together with palpable heart. The native New Brunswicker has proven time and time again on stages everywhere from clubs to theatres, that he is the genuine article.

Matt Andersen Live is presented by the Kootenay Concert Connection in association with 2Day FM.
