The Tallest Man On Earth

Swedish songwriter Kristian Matsson towers above his contemporaries as one of today’s most humbling and evocative songwriters. Known to the world as THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH, he takes the modest folk tradition of Dylan and Guthrie as groundwork and builds upon it an intricate, personal mythology: dense stories gleaned from history, narrative and lived experience.

Fairgrounds will mark Matsson’s first visit to Australia since 2013, when he sold out the Sydney Opera House and gracefully plucked heartstrings nationwide with his intimate solo show. Here he returns with a stunning five-piece band, as seen on international festival stages such as Roskilde and the Justin Vernon curated Eaux Claires, offering revellers a richer and more resonant side of Matsson’s songcraft than they’ve ever witnessed before.

Shouldering universal acclaim from his 2015 album Dark Bird Is Home, The Tallest Man On Earth promises to make his presence felt through revellers’ every hair and fibre when he brings his soul-searching live show to our soil this December.
