Different Folk Records & Hymie's Vintage Records are proud to announce the vinyl release of Jack Klatt's second solo album Shadows in the Sunset on Friday April 29th. order your copy today!

Shadows in the Sunset was recorded live to 2” tape in just three days at a beautiful reclaimed church in Viroqua, WI, that dates to the early 1900s. Produced and engineered by Tom Herbers (Low, the Jayhawks, Trampled by Turtles) Klatt says the album “holds in its grooves ten thousand miles of asphalt, about eight pairs of good shoes, and the generosity of a thousand strangers. It’s a collection of stories about the beauty of blazing sunsets, the art of saying goodbye, and letting endings turn into new beginnings.”

Klatt's record follows Diff Folk's first full length album release, The Foghorn Stringband's Devil in the Seat, which is now available at differentfolkrecords.com/store. Klatt also released a 7 inch 45 rpm vinyl single on Different Folk Records in November (also available at the Diff Folk store.)

Klatt will be performing a release party at The Icehouse in Minneapolis on May 7th 2016 at 10 pm. He'll be playing his newest collection of original material with his roots based backing band and a handful of special guests. Tickets for the show are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.

Biography: Jack Klatt is an award winning songwriter and self taught guitarist from Minneapolis. Combining musical traditions from pre-war blues to the roots of country music, he has been touring the lower 48, spreading his take on American music. He's won recognition from the Minnesota State Arts Board, recorded alongside Spider John Koerner, and made it onto Daytrotter's list of best songs in 2014.
