This bluegrass band is just as comfortable at a dirt road pickin’ session as they are on a concert hall stage.
The Pines--David Huckfelt and brothers Benson and Alex Ramsey--are based in Minneapolis but have their roots in Iowa, and they write that the Midwest is to them "what Monument Valley was to filmmaker John Ford. The flat, endless expanses of the band's native Iowa are at once the settings of, characters in, and muse behind [their] songs." They have appeared with the likes of Arcade Fire, Iris DeMent, Mavis Staples, Bon Iver, and The Holmes Brothers.

Singer-songwriter Pierce Pettis is a veteran of the recording studio, the back-room composing staff (for Muscle Shoals and Polygram), and the road. His songs have been recorded by Pat Alger, Joan Baez, Garth Brooks, Dion and the Belmonts (!), Art Garfunkel, and Dar Williams--in addition to the eleven albums he made over the last three-decades-plus. That's a lot of material on which to draw, so this show could have all kinds of surprises.
