Songwriters in the Round #35

Thursday, May 25, 2023 - 7 - 8:30 pm

The Songwriters in the Round Series is proudly sponsored by the Hallberg Family Foundation Every month, the Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community brings in three songwriters to perform at the Hallberg Center for the Arts in an "In The Round" format, performing their original pieces of music. Admission is Free. May 25th at 7pm, the Songwriters in the Round Series continues with its 35th installment on the Main Gallery Stage featuring the original music of Nathan Frazer, Ben Cook-Feltz and Matt Arthur. Nathan Frazer is a folksinger and songwriter from East Central, MN. He’s been playing around the Northern Pine County and Carlton County area for 15 years, with several sorties into to the Iron Range, Wisconsin, Duluth and the Twin Cities. Nathan has been featured on Midwest Country For RFD-TV, and on the radio at KBEK, KTWH, & KUMD. He has got several professional albums out, and several DIY studio projects released as well! Iowa-raised, Minneapolis-based Ben Cook-Feltz is a singer, songwriter, drummer and self-taught pianist. Combining observational, sometimes quirky lyrics with melodies that hearken back to the classic sounds of the 60′s and 70′s, he has been entertaining audiences throughout the Midwest as a dynamic performer, whether playing solo, with his crackerjack band, or backing up some of the finest regional talent. His most recent single, "Winter Symphony," was released in December 2022. Matt Arthur is A Southern Minnesota blind man with a voice that calls to mind Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, and Nick Cave. He writes and records songs that conjure up early-70s Stones and Crazy Horse-era Neil Young. Fans of Sturgill Simpson and the Drive By Truckers are seriously into Matt Arthur’s music. He is a true American original, and unlike any musician you’re likely to encounter!
