Lehto and Wright
Nov. 15th
at 7:00pm


A Celtic/American, folk/folk
rock band whose music challenges
the boundaries of the traditional
folk genre, as it is molded by their
diverse influences, and born anew.


Tickets: $10.00

Lehto and Wright have a sound that is a unique blend of traditional and modern styles. By taking cues from the Irish, English and American folk traditions and interpreting them with contemporary guitar-based arrangements, Lehto and Wright have taken a fresh approach to the world of folk and folk rock.

Lehto and Wright perform either as an acoustic duo, or a tastefully electric trio, with the addition of Matt Jacobs on drums and percussion. As a duo, John Wright and Steve Lehto perform their material in an acoustic, "unplugged" setting. From American spirituals to Irish tune sets, their accomplished twin guitar/mandolin approach has all the intensity and power as the trio with half the volume. As a trio, Lehto and Wright push the boundaries of Celtic rock, utilizing all the tools of a rock band to achieve the effect of a six-piece band with three musicians. With either line-up, John Wright and Steve Lehto offer an exciting live performance of traditional and contemporary folk music with an eclectic twist.

Lehto and Wright are currently performing music from their first five critically-acclaimed New Folk Records releases Ye Mariners All, The Further Adventures of Darling Cory, A Game of Chess, The Thrashing Machine and Other Stories, and Between the Jigs and the Reels, in addition to material from their upcoming sixth studio album.

Bill & Kate Isles will come back to the Little Theatre after participating in the New London Music Festival in August. They are a nationally-touring singer/songwriter duo based in Duluth. They share their personal experiences through a mix of storytelling, articulate vocals and comedy. Bill's and Kate's honest & sincere style leaves you feeling like you're saying goodbye to dear friends.
It’s been over eighteen years since Bill was a rare survivor of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Instead of ending his life, it jump-started his creative energies, resulting in a 150 show-per-year itinerary, presenting his profoundly meaningful songs. He is joined by his wife of seven years, co-writer and musical collaborator, Kate. Her gentle presence, luscious vocals and intuitive harmonies have endeared her to audiences. Words like “Transcendent” and “Mesmerizing” and “Slapstick” are among the descriptions of their concerts and fans of all ages tell of listening to their albums over and over again. Their concerts are a mix of storytelling, articulate vocals and comedy. Come find out what’s leaving audiences smiling long after the show is over.
