TWISTED PINE w/ Anh Phung

Praised by NPR for their “upbeat, poppy vibe; energetic, driving rhythms" and "virtuosic solos,” Twisted Pine (Boston, Massachusetts) has quickly become one of the most acclaimed young string bands in the U.S. Northeast. Steeped in traditional music, these musicians are also fearless, tuneful improvisers and passionate lovers of pop. Their intricate arrangements of swelling, syncopated rhythm and precise instrumental interplay bring the enveloping sound and hooks of indie pop to an acoustic instrumental setting. The Boston Globe calls them “a wider version of stringband, boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still.”

Anh Phung is a multi-genre instrumentalist based in Toronto, Ontario. With flute as her primary instrument, she received a BMus in Jazz Performance from McGill University. Her performances have ranged from being a soloist with L'Orchestre Symphonique de Quebec under Yoav Talmi, to playing with members of the AACM in tribute to Alice Coltrane on the Jay Pritzger Pavilion in Chicago's Millennium Park, to performing at Osheaga Festival in Montreal with electro-pop band, Propofol, to playing traditional Swedish polskas for Folk Marathon's big ball in Copenhagen. Phung has won numerous awards throughout her career, notably 1st place at the Canadian Music Competition and the Galaxy Rising Star Award for two consecutive years at MusicFest Canada. Her latest project is Hairbrain.

Frank Evans (opening) fell in love with banjo at age 10 and quickly developed a passion for Old Time Appalachian music. He won the youth banjo contest at the Clifftop Appalachian String Band Festival when he was 13 and later placed second over all. In 2010 Evans joined the bluegrass outfit the Slocan Ramblers and recorded their first album Shaking Down the Acorns produced by Juno award winner Andrew Collins. The album gained attention world wide and led them to open for Steve Martin at the Toronto Jazz festival in 2013. In 2011 Evans became the first banjo player to attend Humber College of Music where he studied Jazz. Currently Evans tours extensively year round throughout the world and has played at Rockygrass, Merlefest, and Jacobs Ladder Festival in Isreal. He has taught at the Rockygrass Academy, Nimble Fingers Bluegrass Camp and has played and taught alongside Tony Trischka, Peter Rowan, John Reischman and Ken Whiteley. The Slocan Ramlers released their most recent album, Queen City Jubilee in June. Evans is based in Toronto.
