"...Twisted Pine is now seen as one of the most innovative and consistently thrilling musical groups in New England, if not the entire country." -The Patriot Ledger
"New grass, chamber grass, call it what you will it is infectious and exciting." -Red Line Roots
Full of energy and surprise, wit and subtlety, Twisted Pine has quickly become one of the most acclaimed young string bands in the Northeast. Audiences across the US and UK have been drawn to their forthright songwriting, lush harmonies, musical daring, and “charismatic appeal,” to quote Grammy-winner Alison Brown.
In its early days, Twisted Pine hewed pretty close to its bluegrass origins, but over time the quartet has developed a unique, infectious style without limits. Moving beyond the standard verse-chorus-solo structure of traditional string bands, Twisted Pine is a multilayered ensemble that brings the enveloping sound and pop hooks of indie music to an acoustic instrumental setting.
Opener: Cumberland
Cumberland is the acoustic duo of Jim Rohrer and Lynda Shuster.  Cumberland features the traditional songs and tunes of the Southern Appalachians accompanied by the guitar, banjo, tenor banjo and mandolin.  Jim and Lynda draw heavily upon the repertoire of the Carter Family and early bluegrass and string band music, and weave these influences into contemporary songs as well.  Lynda Shuster is a member of Bourbon Sunset and a former member of the trio CRY.  Jim Rohrer has toured and recorded with Southern Rail. He is currently a host of WOMR’s Bradford Street Bluegrass.
