This new album “Entwined” contains four classical composers writing for bluegrass string band, recontextualized and reimagined as a rhythmically interlocking machine, where contemporary classical post-minimalism meets skillful technique and bluegrass drive.
"An Exhilarating Live Album:High-voltage Metropolitan Klezmer... no relenting in the intensity or the fun department... An outside-the-box sensibility informs the band’s originals... distinguishes this group from others in their field: their repertoire is vibrant and in the here & now." - New York Music Daily
