The Barley Jacks, a Minnesota-based inventive bluegrass and roots music quartet, will perform Sunday, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Minnesota State University, Mankato's Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave.

Front-man and fiddle player Brian Wicklund will be joined by Mike Cramer on guitar, Jim Chenowith on upright bass and Joel Arpin on percussion. The quartet are masters of the fiddle, guitar, bass and drum. Each member of the group brings their divergent backgrounds of blues and bluegrass, classical and Celtic, R & B and bebop to inspire each other and create something entirely new. The Barley Jacks credit Stuart Duncan, Natalie MacMaster, Tim O¹Brien and Ben Winship among their musical influences.

St. Peter native Brian Wicklund is especially looking forward to this show and is “….excited to play on my home turf.”
