Matt the Electrician indeed used to be an electrician, but now he’s focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, more than a dozen records, and literally thousands of shows. It’s folk music for a modern age, rooted in lyrics that focus on the realities and challenges of the 21st century as opposed to, say, the old-school thrill of hopping trains. For his latest album, “We Imagined an Ending,” Matt the Electrician (Matt Sever) challenged himself to turn the seven deadly sins on their head. “I got to wondering, ’What would be the opposite of that?’”
Natalia Zukerman, the daughter of classical musicians Eugenia and Pinchas Zukerman, found herself when she took up slide guitar. You can call her songs folk music if you like, but there’s jazz there too, and some sultry blues. Says the Boston Globe‘s Scott Alarik: “Zukerman’s guitar is a strutting brass band one minute, a sighing lover the next.” Natalia’s an Ark favorite, and she comes to Michigan with music from her new film, “The Women Who Rode Away.”
