Pocketknife is an Iron Range-based, five-piece band that plays original music its members like to call “new age rock and roll with Americana roots.” Formerly known as Big Waves and Bonfires, the group features singer and guitarist Karl Sundquist, fiddle and cowbell ace Jill Burkes, lead guitarist Rob Wheeler, bassist Ethan Schechinger and drummer Matt Pueringer. In 2021, the group toured out west and posted videos on its social media of performances in Uncle Lester’s driveway, the Country Kettle in Beulah, N.D., and the outdoor stage at the Great Northern Bar and Grill in Whitefish, Mont. Sundquist released a solo album in February.
