Night Tree

Scandinavian Cultural Center, 206 Waltham St., West Newton

Night Tree, though rooted in the Celtic folk tradition, uses Celtic as well as other folk traditions such as Swedish, Jewish and American Folk, Progressive Bluegrass and even the Avant-garde to influence their original works. The Night Tree sound spans the dark resonance of the cello, bari sax, and cajon to the drones of the accordion all the way through the soaring melodies of their duelling fiddles, and their shows combine both traditional and original music. This Boston based folk band has been awarded the New England Conservatory Wildcard Honors Ensemble for 2016-2017.
