Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts

By Aitkin County Friends of the Arts (other events)

Friday, August 11 2023 7:00 PM 9:00 PM CDT

Miles Nielsen returns to The Ripple Center with his full band! Led by free-wheeling frontman Miles Nielsen, The Rusted Hearts have been wowing audiences for years with the diversity of their sound, the tightness of their 4-part harmonies, and the quality of their songcraft. Equally comfortable in a compact 3-minute pop song and an epic 10-minute jam, the band has toured incessantly since their inception in 2011, amassing an army of hardcore followers that have dubbed themselves the Rusted Herd.

Rockford-based Nielsen is a second-generation professional music maker. His father Rick Nielsen is a founding member of the seminal Rockford band Cheap Trick. Nielsen inherited his father’s gifts as a guitar player but, unlike his Dad, Miles is a powerful, emotive vocalist. His music is part rock, part folk and part gypsy wedding party.
