The Tallest Man on Earth

When the Bird Sees the Solid Ground Tour
(2018/2019 Performing Arts)

Wed, Nov 28
8:00 PM

“[His] warbly croon, singsong strumming and penchant for poetic folk-pop hits a high-water mark.” Rolling Stone

Playing spare, tuneful indie folk enlivened by passionate vocals and poetic lyrics, The Tallest Man on Earth is Swedish singer-songwriter Kristian Matsson, whose “highly personal lyrics and irresistibly rollicking guitar [are] a thing of refined and impeccable beauty” (NPR). He’s releasing his new EP, When the Bird Sees the Solid Ground, one song at a time accompanied by a video about the process behind each track. Matsson brings this powerful, intimate audience connection to the stage in an evening of song that “can feel like hearing someone rediscover the unfettered joy of playing music in real time” (Pitchfork).
