Asheville raised fiddler Julian Pinelli returns home for an album release show featuring bluegrass inspired fiddle music and a full band of award winning and virtuosic instrumentalists.
Sprung from the music of southern Appalachia, Julian is a free-spirited violinist who spins deep tone with modern ease. Awarded the 2016 Fresh Grass Fiddle Award and winner of the 2017 RockyGrass fiddle competition, Julian has toured extensively with cellist Ben Sollee and progressive bluegrass outfit Front Country.
The idea for this ensemble was sparked in 2017 by a program in Savannah Georgia called the Acoustic Music Seminar which brought the group together for the first time. A year later Julian flew the band to Boston to be coached by Aoife O’Donovan (of I’m With Her and Crooked Still), and record a collection of Julian’s original tunes. The band is comprised of award winning instrumentalists: Tristan Scroggins (mandolin), Matthew Davis (banjo), Sam Leslie (guitar), and Dan Klingsberg (bass). With deep roots in bluegrass, the ensemble features thoughtfully crafted compositions wrought with groove and virtuosic improvisation.
