White Iron Band
White Iron shows combine lyrical accessibility and explosive musicianship to produce a rich experience for the head, heart, and legs.
Originally formed in Ely, MN, the heart of Minnesota’s northern Iron Range, by frontman Matt Pudas, keyboardist Eddie Juntunen,and guitarist Sammy Weyandt. Backed by a driving rhythm section with Jeff Underhill on drums and bass guitarist Andy Ferkinhoff accompanied by the tear in your beer undertones of Lee “Big Country” Martin on Pedal Steel guitar. The White Iron Band embodies the triumphs and struggles of the everyday man.
Their songs carry a tinge of the old cowboy legends canonized by the Highwaymen, with stories ranging from tales of love, pain, jail, work and whiskey. Now based in Minneapolis, the group has established a passionate and equally as rowdy fan-base throughout the Midwest and has traveled further to spread their unique mix of blues, country and Americana roots music.
