Acclaimed singer-songwriter and blues guitarist Matt Andersen brings his powerful voice and hard-driving slide guitar to town as part of the city of Kent Spotlight Series.

Anderson will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1 at the Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center, 10020 S.E. 256th St.

Anderson performs more than 200 live shows a year. His hometown of Perth-Andover, New Brunswick, is a rural, blue-collar village in the Canadian Maritime province. He is no stranger to hard times and hard work – a sensibility that shines through in his performances.
