Back by popular demand, and fresh from their Folk Alliance debut, this modern string band from Boston has opened for SOLAS and released a CD produced by Seamus Egan. As noted on their web site: “These conservatory-trained musicians have absorbed genres from across the globe with their millennial curiosity that results in mixture of Irish, Classical, Jazz, Klezmer, Indian, and Afro-Cuban music.” About the name, “The band thrives on playing in the dark as to allow themselves the opportunity to focus and listen closely to one another as they get inside each other’s sound burrowing into the collection of strings, reeds, and percussion that is Night Tree
.” Featuring Lily Honigberg
