Keith Flint

Flint is a percussionist specializing in congas, djembe, and assorted hand percussion (guiro, cabasa, shakere, maracas, claves, bells, hooves, hubcaps, rebar, etcetera). He also plays harmonica, and he'll occasionally bring out his oft-forsaken guitar. Flint is currently collaborating with other musicians on a variety of projects that include writing, arranging, performing, and recording.

Columbus area band Return of the Pale Horse is the collaborative work of singer/songwriter and guitarist Brad Knull and percussionist and harmonica player Keith Flint. Their music is deeply rooted in the tradition of Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young and Leonard Cohen. The contemplative songs they play grapple with spirituality, birth, death and relationships. Provocative lyrics are supported by a musical style that borrows heavily from the Americana tradition with an infusion of modern sensibility and context. Their sound is sparse and moody, uncovering the weight of the lyrics, which Knull delivers with an emotive and seasoned voice. Flint adds spare, primal percussion rhythms and plaintive harmonica accompaniment. The band often features other musicians whose styles and temperament complement the duo.
