Night Tree celebrates the release of their sophomore album Dedications at The Feast & Field Market in Barnard, VT on Thursday, August 30th at 5:30PM, starting a 10-date East Coast tour.  This exciting release show will feature the album’s twelve new compositions each dedicated to a friend, lover, or inspirational artist resulting in music, ranging from somber and plaintive melodies to raucous and energized tumult.  The album was produced by Séamus Egan, a founding member of SOLAS, who says, “They play with such spark and musicality. Thoughtful compositions, precise, inventive arrangements. An absolute joy. Go hear them!”

In September of 2016, six diverse musicians came together unexpectedly within the walls of Boston’s New England Conservatory to form New Acoustic band, Night Tree.  The sextet attracts dramatic attention not only for its abnormal instrumentation of two fiddles, cello, accordion, saxophone, percussion, voice, and the occasional viola and mandolin, but for their collective representation and incorporation of traditions from Irish, Classical, Swedish, Jazz, Klezmer, and Afro-Cuban music.

 

Night Tree’s debut album was ranked No. 6 New Folk Album by Folk-DJs in September 2017.  Since, they have been featured at the Caramoor American Roots Festival, Middlebury Festival on the Green, and internationally at Sweden’s No. 1 folk music festival, Korrö Folkmusikfestival.  Brian O’Donovan, Senior DJ at Boston’s WGBH, calls Night Tree, “One of the most exciting roots-based music groups to emerge from the New England Conservatory in many years.  Their individual chops and adventurous approach make Night Tree a band to watch for.”
