Minnesota-based folf-rock and progressive rock duo, Lehto & Wright have a sound that is a unique blend of traditional and contemporary styles by taking cues from the British Isles and American folk traditions and setting them in contemporary, guitar-based arrangements. Their unique approach to the world of folk, folk rock and progressive rock will leave audiences spell-bound. Each ticket buyers receive a copy of their new release!
JOHN WRIGHT: Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Bass Pedals and Vocals – With a long-standing dedication to traditional music, Wright’s background spans many different musical styles including blues, fusion, pop Latin and rock. By incorporating all these influences, Wright has his own unique approach to the folk and folk rock genres. This is evident in his tasteful acoustic guitar and bass work. Other recent music endeavors include The Galactic Cowboy Orchestra and his work as a producer, arranger and engineer at The Villa Studio in Savage, MN.
STEVE LEHTO: Acoustic and Electric Guitars, Mandolin and Vocals – With influences ranging from Miles Davis to Martin Carthy, from King Crimson to Richard Thompson, Steve Lehto’s impressive versatility and range on the guitar is matched only by the emotion he puts into his playing. Equally at home playing an Irish jig or a jazz standard, he brings a unique and accomplished style to the folk and folk rock world.
MATT JACOBS: Drums and Assorted Percussion – Matt Jacobs’ resume reflects his many talents as a percussionist. From blues with Big Walter Smith, pop with The Auto Body Experience and gigs with Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, Jacobs is a seasoned pro that understand the folk rock tradition and provides a solid foundation for Lehto & Wright.
