Boston’s own Twisted Pine [Boston Music Awards Americana Artist of 2021] has been on the road all summer. Now the band is looking forward to a hometown play at Passim. They return packing new work, faves, and covers. Can’t wait to see you there!
Twisted Pine has been praised by NPR for their “upbeat, poppy vibe; energetic, driving rhythms; and virtuosic solos.” Their skyrocketing pandemic release Right Now [Signature Sounds Recordings] ranges limitless from bluegrass to funk, jazz, pop, and soul. Twisted Pine is Kathleen Parks on five-string fiddle and lead vocals, Dan Bui on mandolin, Chris Sartori on upright bass, and Anh Phung on flute. “Twisted Pine doesn’t just break the rules, they rewrite them,” writes Glide.
“They were once bluegrass,” writes The Boston Globe, “but … this Boston band has become something else, a wider version of string band, boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still.” Photo: Blake Hannahson, in Telluride, CO
