[FOLK] + WED., DEC. 13
String band Twisted Pine met and formed at Berklee College of Music, in Boston, a reliable breeding crowd for folk and its adjacent genres. The group bears a name fitting of its sound. Its jazzy-tinged bluegrass twists and turns, jumping from melancholy mandolin-picking to fervent violin, accompanied by rich vocals that effortlessly dip between octaves. The material arcs toward sweet nostalgia, such as reminiscing about late-night roof talks or the optimism of a 21st birthday. Twisted Pine plays Club Café, accompanied by local folk groups The Hills & The Rivers, and Sweetheart of the Barricades.
