Boston’s Twisted Pine came together at the famed Tuesday Night Bluegrass jams at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, Massachusettes, while in school at the Berklee College of Music. After honing their traditional bluegrass chops there for two years, they started to write original material. This opened the door to incorporating their diverse musical influences and backgrounds that range from classical to indie-songwriters to jazz and funk to Celtic. What results is a fresh progressive “pop-grass” string band sound like none other.
Twisted Pine (Rachel Sumner – guitar, vocals; Kathleen Parks – fiddle, vocals; Dan Bui – mandolin; Chris Sartori – bass) stopped by for a Folk Alley Session at Beehive Productions studio in Saranac Lake, NY in August, 2017 to play songs from their Signature Sounds, self-titled debut album.
