Critically acclaimed folk-rock band to perform at the New York Mills Regioal Cultural Center

Lehto and Wright will preform at the Cultural Center in New York Mills on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

The Minneapolis-based duo of Steven Lehto and John Wright have a wide array of influences, ranging anywhere from progressive folk pioneers to King Crimson, Miles Davis and Richard Thompson. Collectively, their backgrounds include jazz, blues, fusion, pop, Latin and rock. Joining them is Matt Jacobs on drums and percussion, and his background is similar.

Lehto and Wright are "among North America's best practitioners of Anglo-Celtic folk-rock ... wonderfully intricate, powerful guitar-driven music," according to Dirty Linen. Lehto and Wright have a sound that is a unique blend of traditional and modern styles. By taking cues from the Irish, English and American folk traditions and interpreting them with contemporary guitar-based arrangements, Lehto and Wright take a fresh approach to the world of folk and folk rock.
