JPR Live Session: Twisted Pine - Friday, October 2nd at Noon
On Friday, October 2nd at Noon, JPR will broadcast a JPR Live Session (from afar) with Twisted Pine on Open Air.
This Boston-based spacecraft of a band was once bluegrass but is now “something else, a wider version of a stringband, boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still" (The Boston Globe). Their new album Right Now is a cosmic map that pays homage to influences as disparate as Father John Misty and Tex Logan -- just two of the points that intersect the plane of their world.
Twisted Pine is Kathleen Parks (Newburgh, NY) on fiddle and lead vocals; Dan Bui (Houston, TX) on mandolin; Chris Sartori (Concord, MA) on bass; and Twisted Pine's newest addition, Anh Phung (Chilliwack, BC) on flute.
Twisted Pine plays under the influence of explorers Jerry Douglas (with whom the band occasionally tours), Bela Fleck, Sierra Hull, Billy Strings, The Wood Brothers, and Lake Street Dive and Crooked Still.
