A folk fiddler, old-time banjo player and singer-guitarist who has been making a name for himself from the Iron Range to the Twin Cities will perform Sunday, July 28, at Roosevelt Hall in Barrett.
The show is presented by the Prairie Wind Players.
Kyle Ollah is out of Duluth with a unique song selection and versatility on stringed instruments. He was a multi-intrumentalist for “Matt Ray and Those Damn Horses” before taking off on a solo career.
In 2018 he released, “Used To Wear That Old Straw Hat, but Now You Wear the Crown,” an album traditional folk songs with guitar and five-string banjo accompaniment . Through the years, Ollah has played and recorded with folk musician Charlie Parr, and in 2016 the two collaborated on the title track of Ollah’s EP, “Wouldn’t Mind Working From Sun to Sun,” as well as Parr’s release, “I Ain’t Dead Yet.”
Ollah and friends will perform music from the North Country at 4 p.m., with tickets available at the door.
