Northern Resonance is the Scandinavian string trio that takes newly composed folk music into  enormous soundscapes. With their previously untested combination of  instruments; viola d’amore, hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa they let  Scandinavian music meet explosive rhythms and grand chamber-like  arrangements that takes folk music in a new direction. All members are  highly skilled and accomplished musicians, rooted in traditional music.  With an intense musical connection that is rare to come across, they  invite you into their world of compositions. There is great life in their tunes, and the trio knows how to bring it out.



Tall Poppy String Band is  an Old Time trio featuring fiddler and 2022 International Bluegrass  Music Association’s Momentum Instrumentalist of the year George Jackson, guitarist Morgan Harris, and banjoist Cameron DeWhitt. Drawing from the deep well of American string band music, Tall Poppy String Band  approaches tradition with playful curiosity; each performance more a discussion than a statement. Whether they’re chasing the elusive downbeat of a source recording, playing with the pronouns in a bluegrass  standard, or challenging the assumed roles of their instruments, Tall  Poppy String Band endeavors to prove that tradition is still being  written.



Their  debut, self titled album was released in 2022. “Intermittently majestic  and mournful, the breadth of the album’s emotional palette is wide.” Country Queer

“Just  as it is a joy to listen to and watch this trio play music, it is also a  pleasure to watch them interact. The fun they have together enhances  the deeply collaborative and respectful nature of their overall style. I  truly look forward to seeing this album make its way into the world,  and to the future endeavors of Tall Poppy String Band.” — Folk Works
