Why See The Tallest Man on Earth?
The Tallest Man on Earth hits the road
Singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson is often lauded as Sweden's answer to Bob Dylan. His gravel-toned, heart-felt vocals and skill with an acoustic guitar evoke the spirit of the rambling planes and open roads of the Americana Folk tradition with a charming Indie twist. The free-wheeling troubadour now heads out on a tour of the US to support his project 'When The Bird Sees Solid Ground'. This new five part series saw new tracks being released monthly with an accompanying video throughout 2018.
Mattson's music is as known for its husky vocal growls and beat poetry allusions as its intricate fingerpicking and fretwork. When playing alone, he has the ability to completely disarm the crowd and general chatter reduces from a dissonant buzz to a hushed reverence in an instant. There is something simply magnetic about the singer as he pours his heart out on stage.
Performance date: 27 November 2018
