We wanted to plaster the paper with stories celebrating the spirited songwriting and impressive picking of the Swedish minstrel who goes by the name the Tallest Man on Earth, but it turns out he doesn’t do interviews with U.S. press. It was a bummer at first, but we’ve recovered in time to revive our excitement at welcoming him back to town. From his 2008 debut LP, Shallow Graves, to his most recent release, last year’s There’s No Leaving Now, Kristian Matsson’s lyrics resonate as compellingly as the warm tone of his guitar, and his live show is as sincere as his earnest poetry. Energetic and involved, this one man will undoubtedly fill the cavernous Beacham with his satisfying brand of folk, drawing them in from the rafters with his bursting storytelling, whether it’s a slow lean forward for a lulling track like “1904” or an eager bound to the stage for a charging ballad like “The Gardener.” – Ashley Belanger
