The 24 year-old singer-songwriter has opened dates for headliners like Jason Isbell, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Shovels & Rope, and Lake Street Dive. Millsap found inspiration in “fire and brimstone preaching” from his Pentecostal days. This, plus bluesy-folk and a dash of Rock ‘n’ Roll define the mixture of Millsap’s music.

“One of the most arresting and puckish young singer-songwriters to emerge in the Americana scene this decade” –NPR Music

The dedicated artist is currently touring on his most recent release The Very Last Day has received high critical acclaim. The album itself is an Americana apocalyptic commentary; the songs inspired by a bleak winter Millsap endured in Oklahoma. He also recently released a collaboration with Americana all-star Sarah Jarosz under Luck Mansion Sessions (listen).

Discovered by Old Crow Medecine Show’s manager, Parker Millsap has quickly turned into an artist on the rise with a live performance riddled with compassionate, honest lyrics, charm and pure musicianship.

Tickets are available online, over the phone at (877) 987 6487, or at The Top Hat’s box office in downtown Missoula. RSVP to the Facebook event page to join the conversation. More information on the performance can be found here.
