11th & Grant With Eric Funk

11th & Grant with Eric Funk is the premiere outlet for music performance in Montana, seeking out the state's most acclaimed, accomplished, and pioneering talent. The Emmy winning performance series also devotes significant time to each artist's personal story, insights into their music and their approach to life, ultimately providing a deeper experience than a seat at a concert. Accomplished composer and musician Eric Funk serves as host and artistic director, hand selecting each performer from communities around the state to form a diverse series featuring genres from jazz to classical, country to zydeco, and rock to fusion.

Folk music oftentimes relies on its ability to carry and tell a good story.

Folk music oftentimes relies on its ability to carry and tell a good story. It becomes especially powerful when you have a charismatic folk singer "bringing it on." Tonight's group, The Blokes, reveals the down-home magic of Keith Lawrie, a yarn spinner who moved to Montana 20 years ago from Australia, and has been working his magic across Montana to the delight of music loving audiences for quite awhile. We thought "11th & Grant" was the perfect vehicle to bring you up close and personal to this direct-from-the-heart artist and his band. Settle back and prepare yourselves to be delighted with The Blokes.
