A singer, songwriter, photographer, Hank Harris has broadened the definition of South Dakota music in a career that spans ten albums. Coupled with a gift for storytelling, the Rapid City-based musician weaves elements of folk, blues, country, reggae, jazz, gospel and world music into a convention-breaking synthesis. Whether performing alone or with various duos, trios, and the occasional nine-piece horn band, Harris not only shows his breadth as a singer/songwriter but also the diversity of his influences. Since his debut album thirty years ago, Harris has evolved into a unique and eclectic artist.
Besides being inducted into The South Dakota Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times, (DD and the Fayrohs and Red Willow Band), he researched and recorded The Deadwood Songbook CD’s Volumes I and II for the Adams Museum in Deadwood, and the matching South Dakota Public Broadcasting documentary/concert film of the same name.
Matt Berry is a professional musician based out of Nashville, TN. He is currently traveling with “We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered.” Some of the people Matt has toured with include John Michael Montgomery, Collin Raye, T. Graham Brown, and Mandy Barnett. Before moving to Nashville, Matt worked as a professional musician in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Matt is originally from Spearfish, SD.
