Mason Jennings stops by CSPS Hall as part of nationwide tour

Mason Jennings

CSPS Hall — Saturday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m.

Singer-songwriter Mason Jennings will perform at CSPS Hall this Saturday, Oct. 10 as part of his coast-to-coast fall tour.

Known for his thoughtful lyrics, warm melodies and engaging stage presence, Jennings has cultivated a devoted fan based over the course of his career. Born in Hawaii, Jennings has called the Twin Cities area home since moving there as a teenager. He picked up a guitar at the age of 13 and started writing his own music soon after. A few years later, he dropped out of high school to pursue a music career and began attracting attention from major record labels and booking agencies.

Over his 12-year career, Jennings has been affiliated with Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records and has released music under Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock’s label. His most recent album, Always Been was produced by Bo Ramsey and features Iowan band, The Pines.

Tickets for Saturday’s show are $23 in advance and will be $28 at the door.
