Twisted Pine

Boston-based acoustic quartet Twisted Pine have a new single, "Lonestar," out now through all streaming outlets via Signature Sounds Records. The fiddle tune, a traveling song written by fiddler/lead singer Kathleen Parks, finds the virtuosic group putting their own spirited, genre-bending take on traditional bluegrass. It's one of three songs the band recorded for their recent PASTE Magazine session at Merlefest in North Carolina.

Twisted Pine—once a straightforward, Boston-based bluegrass act—has been hard at work, busily evolving into what the Boston Globe now calls “something else, a wider version of a string band; boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still.” Their influences certainly don’t stop there—Twisted Pine’s collective instrumental and songwriting skills should also be listed in the same echelon of contemporaries like Vulfpeck or Hiatus Kaiyote or Lake Street Dive.
