The whistling of the high-mountain wind forms eerie overtones and postmodern statement. The repeated thrum of a string against wood and hide turns into a meditative, evocative figure straight from the avant garde. The descendents of isolated Siberian herdsmen make serious, strangely universal music out of some of the planets quirkiest acoustics.

Joe Rut rolls into the Freight & Salvage to celebrate the Release of his 7th album, Nekkid. Joe’s quirky sense of humor underpins a heartfelt, richly lyrical and subtly hallucinatory Americana/Alt-country landscape. His funny songs can break your heart, and his sad songs can make you laugh. Comparisons have been drawn to Todd Snider, Josh Ritter, John Prine, and Loudon Wainright III.
