Fellow Pynins

April 21 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Catamount Arts is pleased to present award-winning contemporary folk duo Fellow Pynins, at United Community Church on Sunday, April 21st, at 7pm. Described by NPR’s Bob Boilen as “folk music with a touch of whimsy,” Fellow Pynin’s live show promises an enchanting escapade of equal parts mirth and woe as the duo, equipped with claw-hammer banjo, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, and acoustic guitar, presents a charming program of delightful originals and reworked traditional ballads.

Based in Ashland, OR, Fellow Pynins is Dani Aubert (claw-hammer banjo, bouzouki) and solo artist Ian George (guitar, mandolin). Celebrated songwriters, collectors, and interpreters of traditional balladry, they’ve toured incessantly in the U.S. and the UK, appearing at the Cambridge Folk Festival, Wilderness Festival, Omagh Bluegrass Festival, and sold out dates in Ireland.
NPR’s Bob Boilen called Fellow Pynins one of the best Tiny Desk submissions in 2019, the same year they won the Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Duet competition. Their latest album, “Lady Mondegreen,” released while the duo showcased at the 2022 Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City, was recorded live over ten days in December, 2021, and features songs they learned person-to-person while traveling Europe in a camper van.

“An exquisitely harmonised treasure trove of imaginatively reinterpreted, historically significantly acoustic music,” Songlines raves of the album. Fellow Pynins’ keen harmonies, adventurous arrangements, and masterful instrumentation are in abundance on the new album, described by Paul McGee of Lonesome Highway as one of the year’s best.

“Fellow Pynins will transport you into their haunting and beguiling world of love tales and spine-tingling harmonies,” says Lisa Dunn for the BBC. “They’ll have you traveling far and wide to see them again.”

Fellow Pynins captivated folk music fans last year at Lyndon’s York Street Meeting House. The duo’s return to the Northeast Kingdom promises bucolic harmonies and gorgeous songcraft for old and new fans alike.
