Blitzen Trapper

Blitzen Trapper’s brand of alternative country music is an ideal soundtrack for warm summer nights. The band specializes in a sound that straddles the line between somber and mellow. Currently touring ahead of a yet-to-be-named eighth studio album, coming out this September, Blitzen Trapper is touring throughout the Northwest and West this summer. From slide guitar to harmonicas and banjos, the band will provide a healthy dose of Americana both in its musical stylings and its appearance — the Blitzen Trapper dress code seems to include long hair, bushy beards and a healthy dose of flannel.
