w/ Hillary Fitz Band & River Kittens
The Mighty Pines are a fierce roots band making music inspired by the wide rivers and red-brick streets of St. Louis. For the last five years they’ve been fashioning their distinctive heartland sound. The music is fresh: bluegrass meets acoustic soul and rock & roll. With their genre bending original songs the band bridges the gap between groove and grass, between country and funk, between blues and folk. The music can at one moment be raucous and at the next hushed, with soaring harmonies keeping it sweet through every song. The Pines formed in 2012 and since have released three albums, played hundreds of live shows and shared bills with such renowned acts as Greensky Bluegrass, Sam Bush, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Fruition, and many more in bars and concert halls across the country. This is a band that can rage a late night festival show or captivate an intimate listening room crowd. Their latest release, Lonesome Blues, establishes The Mighty Pines as a young, exciting force in grass-roots music–but there’s only way to truly experience this dynamic quartet: see them live.
