Ky Burt is a nationally touring musician/singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist born and raised in oak forests of the Midwest. Prone to travel and majestic landscapes, Ky has been picking up a variety of musical influences since his early youth through time playing in Appalachia, the Northeast, and the Southwest. Having spent nearly a decade working on environmental and community issues as both an educator and naturalist, Ky has cultivated a unique perspective on the connection between people, place, and the land. Music has been the well-traveled suitcase that Ky carries through his journeys. With sweeping melodic vocals, and playing the acoustic guitar, hollow body electric guitar, five string banjo, mandolin, and harmonica, Ky brings fresh original music to the sounds of Americana. Ky was recently selected as the 2014 Break-Out Artist of the Year for Music in the Arizona Daily Sun.
