Rooted in blues, Mike Munson fills the stage with a fluid combination of skilled finger picking and masterful slide guitar. Influenced by the likes of John Lee Hooker and Mississippi John Hurt, his songs tell raw stories of work, travel and loss.
Since the summer of 2011 Mike has had a Sunday night residency at Ed's (no name) Bar in Winona, MN. He performs throughout the region including regular appearances in Duluth, MN, LaCrosse, WI, and the Twin Cities. He has shared the stage with Charlie Parr and Joe and Vicki Price on multiple occasions, among others.
"The only complaint I ever have about his sets is that they come to an end. Mike (the man and the musician) exudes quality." Ed Hoffman, owner Ed's (no name) Bar, Winona.
