Steeped in traditional music, these musicians are also fearless, tuneful improvisers and passionate lovers of pop. While it’s easy to celebrate each of the band members individually, Twisted Pine is more than a collection of talented musicians - it’s a unit that grooves together. Their intricate arrangements of swelling, syncopated rhythm and precise instrumental interplay bring the enveloping sound and hooks of indie pop to an acoustic instrumental setting.
You’ll find Twisted Pine on stages large and small, entertaining festivals of thousands and intimate rooms alike. Winners of the 2018 Boston Music Award's Americana Artist of the Year and selected as one of Improper Bostonian's 2018 "Top 10 Local Acts on the Rise," Twisted Pine “absolutely rule their musical world with humor and relish,” says legendary fiddler Darol Anger.
Twisted Pine released its debut album of original music in 2017, followed in 2018 by Dreams, an EP of “wildly innovative covers... full of spark, light, and irresistible force” (PopMatters). Check out Twisted Pine on tour and see why the Boston Globe calls the stringband “boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still.”
