At the crossroads of South American folk music and Northern Americana, you will find Acoustic Nomads, a band of rising stars taking the acoustic music scene by storm.
Acoustic Nomads interweaves contemporary improvisation and newgrass with folkloric traditions from North and South America, with influences spanning from Appalachia to Argentina.
The band’s unique sound is a result of the players harnessing these varied musical interests and joyously exploring uncharted musical territory together.
Since forming in 2019, Acoustic Nomads has headlined performances at WBUR Cityspace in Boston, Club Passim in Cambridge, Hartford’s Baby Grand Jazz Series, Arts at the Armory in Somerville, Barnarts’ Feast & Field Series in Barnard VT, and performed at major bluegrass festivals including Freshgrass, Grey Fox, and Joe Val.
Their performances maintain the spirit of folkloric music while delving into modern jazz improvisation and sophisticated chamber music arrangements, showing how different cultures can come together and join in the celebration of humanity through art.
Acoustic Nomads’ two most recent albums, “The Abominable Stringband Vol. 1 & 2,” are available for streaming and purchase wherever you get your music!
Following in the footsteps of world music giants like The Silk Road Project, Acoustic Nomads seeks to change the world through musical collaboration. Acoustic Nomads goal is to highlight the diversity within and commonality between musical traditions, creating curious, compassionate fans of global music all over the world.
