The New Students perform original songs in an eclectic blend of folk, roots, bluegrass and Americana traditions.
Tight three-part vocal harmonies, skilled acoustic instrumentation, and thoughtful lyrics make up their signature sound that has been delighting East Coast audiences for nearly a decade. Together they have recorded three albums of original songs. In coffee houses, concert halls and Broadway stages, the members of The New Students have collaborated with the likes of Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul and Mary), George Grove (The Kingston Trio), and Elvis Costello. Combining poetry with conscience, humor with integrity, and—most of all—classic with modern, The New Students evoke the pioneering spirit of the 1960s. Truly, they are new students of an old school.
