Rooted in the music of the Celtic world, Night Tree has crafted a unique sound which incorporates Swedish, Jewish, Afro-Cuban and American folk traditions.
Performances by these New England Conservatory-trained musicians include fiery solos and breakdowns that revitalize traditional music with wild, youthful energy.
In Night Tree’s world, the dark resonance of the cello, baritone saxophone and cajón (box-shaped hand percussion) dances with the drones of accordion and the soaring melodies of dueling fiddles. It’s music that’s timely and timeless.
“I’m thrilled to have been part of this brilliant young band’s debut album. They play with such spark and musicality. An absolute joy. Go hear them!”
– Séamus Egan, founding member of SOLAS and Night Tree producer
