Twisted Pine has been praised by NPR for their "upbeat, poppy vibe; energetic, driving rhythms; and virtuosic solos.” Their skyrocketing pandemic release Right Now [Signature Sounds Recordings] ranges limitless from bluegrass to funk, jazz, pop, and soul. Twisted Pine is Kathleen Parks on five-string fiddle and lead vocals, Dan Bui on mandolin, Chris Sartori on upright bass, and Toronto's own Anh Phung on flute. "Twisted Pine doesn’t just break the rules, they rewrite them,” writes Glide. Check out Twisted Pine here in their April 2022 Paste session at WinterWondergrass/Tahoe: "They were once bluegrass," writes The Boston Globe, "but ... this Boston band has become something else, a wider version of string band, boundary jumpers akin to outfits like Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek, and Crooked Still.” Twisted Pine is appearing in festivals across the US this year; after a long two years of closed borders, they're thrilled to jump the boundary to play Toronto Jazz.
