Kalle Mattson adds catchy rock to folk music

E-mail Print PDF

The Owl Acoustic Lounge started off really slow, on Saturday, March 15 for songwriters Dave McKillop and Sault Ste Marie’s KallKalle Mattson and his band adding a rock edge to folk music. Photo by Richard Amerye Mattson and his band.

 McKillop played and sang a solo set of mellow melodic folk acoustic music to a pretty much  indifferent crowd.

 But by the time Kalle Mattson and his tight band took the stage, people were basically hanging from the ceiling.

 Mattson’s band played a stellar set, complementing  Mattson’s pleasant vocals and  rhythm guitar.

They played catchy, toe tapping, hook filled  folk rock that had everyone paying attention. He also had a trumpet player to add extra textures. I was sad I only caught the last part of the set because it felt like they were just getting started when they ended around midnight.
