Award-winning Americana musician, Shakey Graves, will return to KettleHouse Amphitheater on August 30, 2022 with rising folk artist Sierra Ferrell.
No stranger to Montana, Alejandro Rose-Garcia a.k.a. Shakey Graves, sold out the Wilma in 2015, graduating to the Amphitheater in 2019 when he co-headlined a sold out show with Lord Huron. He played to a packed house in 2021 for his first sole headlining performance at the Amp and there’s no slowing down for Shakey. With his raw and gritty mix of blues, country and rock — Shakey continues to grow his fanbase across the globe.
In 2021, Shakey Graves celebrated the 10 year-anniversary of his debut album Roll the Bones. He released it as Roll the Bones X on Dualtone Records and included additional songs not included on the original. He also released the EP, Georgia Moon, in 2021.
Most recently, he dropped the single “Ready or Not” ft. Sierra Ferrell. We’re hoping to see a live collaboration since Sierra will be opening for Shakey when we see them in August.
Actually, Sierra is on her way to Montana in just a few days when she headlines The ELM in Bozeman on Mar. 15th. If you’re in the area, you should check it out!

About Shakey Graves
The prehistory of Shakey Graves exists in two overstuffed folders. Inside them, artifacts document an immense era of anonymous DIY creativity, from 2007 through 2010 – the three years before Roll The Bones came out and changed his life.
There are stencils, lyrics, drawings, prototypes for concert posters, and even a zine. The latter, which Graves – aka Alejandro Rose-Garcia – wrote and illustrated, tells the tale of a once-courageous, now retired mouse who must journey to the moon to save his sweetheart. At the time, he envisioned the photocopied storybook as a potential vessel for releasing his music.
“There was a lot of conceptualizing going on – trying to figure out what I wanted stuff to look like, sound like, and be like,” Rose-Garcia recalls, shuffling through the physical files on his second-story deck in South Austin. “And, honestly, a lot of trying to keep myself from going crazy.” Continue reading…
