Poor Old Shine
A self-assured young band, formed at the University of Connecticut, just now hitting its stride. The Connecticut quintet prizes the human element that underpins their music by emphasizing the importance of the people behind the music. They strive to keep a pure, handcrafted feel behind every tune they create. With influences by Pete Seeger, vintage bluegrass, and bands like the Avett Brothers; Poor Old Shine revitalizes, rather than simply revives, the stomping, galloping country swing of an old-time string band.
