Mighty Poplar’s debut shows a level of curiosity and engagement that’s only found at the highest echelons of music making. What distinguishes them from the members' full-time endeavors in bands like Punch Brothers or Watchhouse is that this band "is a chance to play real deal bluegrass,” says Eldridge. Pikelny agrees, adding that “in some ways this album is biographical for each one of us. It was an opportunity to play the music that we love at our core, and the music that has informed what we do in our other long-standing projects.” Ultimately, there was a kind of joy and relief in coming back to their roots in celebration and camaraderie. “There’s a reunion element to this,” he says, “which is ridiculous because it was the first time all five of us were in the same room. But the ease in which it came together felt like we were getting the band back together.”
