Mankato Times

SAINT PETER, MINN. – Internationally renowned multimedia artist Graham Lambkin, known to southern Minnesota audiences for guest appearances on KMSU Radio’s Free Form Freakout, will perform live at the Arts Center of Saint Peter, 315 S. Minnesota Ave., on Friday, April 21.

“Graham Lambkin’s solo and collaborative sound work, along with his tasteful curation of his Kye record label, has been a continuous source of inspiration,” says David Perron, host of KMSU Radio’s Free Form Freakout, a weekly broadcast and podcast devoted to underground and experimental music.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for a pre-show reception with cash refreshments provided by Patrick’s on Third and Morgan Creek Vineyards. Performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door, no advance sales.

Originally from the U.K., now based in New York, Lambkin was a founding member of the seminal avant D.I.Y. folk/rock outfit The Shadow Ring. Today he’s a respected sound artist, improviser, visual artist and poet, performing and exhibiting across the U.S. and Europe. This is his first solo appearance in Minnesota.

The April 21 event also includes performances by:

Paul Metzger, veteran of the Twin Cities experimental/improvised music community dating back to the mid-1980s with TVBC. A guitarist, Metzger most frequently plays a custom-built banjo, performing extended pieces that draw deep from the American folk tradition while mixing in Eastern tonalities. He was a featured artist in TPT’s weekly MN Original series.   

Justin Meyers, an electronic composer, visual artist and modular synth builder based in Minneapolis. For more than a decade, Meyers ran the Tone Filth record label that was focused on documenting his own work and the then-burgeoning Midwestern noise scene. In recent years, Meyers started Sympathy Limited, a label focused more on electro-acoustic and computer-based composition, while continuing to produce new music of his own in this vein. 

Maths Balance Volumes, a tape collage duo that includes former Mankato resident Clay Kolbinger and current KMSU Radio host DJ Jameson. The April 21 show is the duo’s reunion after a six-year hiatus. Both performers actively record under the solo monikers Termite Acropolis and Final Seed, respectively.

The concert is made possible by support from the State Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature to KMSU Radio.

Since 1979, the Arts Center of Saint Peter has hosted performances, classes, and exhibits showcasing regional and national artists. Hours and information are at www.artscentersp.org
