Lehto & Wright
Lehto & Wright is a MN-based Folk-Rock and Progressive RockÂ band whose first live performance was in 1999 and has continued, non-stop, to this day. Lehto & Wright have a sound that is a unique blend of traditional and modern styles. By taking cues from the British IslesÂ and American folk traditions and interpreting them with contemporary guitar-based arrangements, Â Lehto & Wright have taken a uniqueÂ Â approach to the world of Folk, Folk Rock and Progressive Rock.
Their debut album,Â Ye Mariners All, and its subsequent release in 2000, met with enthusiastic praise. Six more studio albums and one live release followed to rave reviews. Lehto & Wright have performed at many different concert series and festivals including the MN State Fair, Syracuse Irish Festival, MN Irish Festival, The Ark, and many other venues of note, including the Focal Point, where they have become much-loved favorites!
Lehto & 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 & Wright push the boundaries of Celtic and Progressive rock, utilizing all the tools of a rock band to achieve the effect of a six-piece band with three musicians.
