Praised by NPR for their “upbeat, poppy vibe; energetic, driving rhythms; and virtuosic solos,” Twisted Pine is branching out, taking their instrumental brilliance to another dimension. Exploring a sound they call Americana funk, the once-bluegrass band “has become something else, a wider version of string band, boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still.” –Boston Globe. Twisted Pine turns bluegrass jazzy, indie folk poppy, and grooves funky. Taking chances with the skills to get away with it, these runaway trains of talent (Kathleen Parks, fiddle; Dan Bui, mandolin; Sartori, bass; Anh Phung, flute) come together in fearless improvisation and intricate arrangements. Call it whatever you want, Twisted Pine is a whole vibe – come to The Monarch and let it cover you.
