Pine Marten are an innovative modern string band drawing on folk music from around the world. With influences ranging from bluegrass and Irish trad to folk, funk and blues, the band digs deep into these inter-related forms of roots music to create a unique and exciting sound. Their debut EP , ‘Gone Beyond’ recorded by Irish flute legend Alan Doherty, showcases these diverse influences with 5 tracks featuring funky modern bluegrass, breakneck old-time fiddle tunes, punchy Irish jigs and ambient original songwriting. The band is comprised of Paddy Kiernan, one of Ireland’s top banjoists, Niall Hughes, a bassist involved in countless projects in Ireland and abroad, folk-cello innovator Alec Brown, and one of France’s finest bluegrass musicians, Simon Guy.
