Josh Harty w/ Kari Arnett
Josh Harty's unique blend of American music has become a must-hear for those who keep the tradition of country, blues and folk close to their hearts. Born and raised on the plains of North Dakota, Josh has continued the old family tradition of playing guitar. His father, both a preacher, and the Police Chief of their small town, was also Harty's music mentor.
In the past decade Josh has put out three critically acclaimed albums, while touring continuously across Europe and North America, and shows no signs of slowing down. Josh is always looking for that balance between the rolling road and the people who inspire him, trading stories around kitchen tables and theatre stages. Hartys live shows prove that good story telling combined with journeyman musicianship is as American as music gets.
An honest voice and fingers that seem to catch fire! -Atlanta Music Guide
There is a dignity to this music making that leaves us feeling enriched for the experience. . .
"Arnetts music is rooted in Loretta Lynn country but theres much more to it than that. The emotional depth of her storytelling is matched by the elegance of the melodies and the power of her voice, a sound full of mournfulness and life experience that will speak to your soul." - Rick Tvedt, Local Sounds Magazine
Born in Madison, WI, and raised on farm outside of rural Cambria, WI, Kari always was fluent in the language of music. Always singing and starting out learning piano, by ear, Arnett was curating songs from an early age, later picking up guitar.
Drawing lyrics from hard life experiences, Arnett's focus was to connect to other's through song.
