Fellow Pynins is an award-winning contemporary folk duo with a keen and bucolic sense of vocal harmony and song craft. Their live performance is a whimsically emotional escapade through the chasms of our, yes, feelings. Dashed with spontaneous and clever banter, mirth and woe, you will probably cry and quite possibly laugh, a lot. Wielding claw-hammer banjo, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, and acoustic guitar the duo sings predominantly original music as well as reworked traditional ballads gathered from their travels.
Six years ago, Sawtooth released the beloved Post-Americana (GR-002); since then, in between touring and rippin’ local shows, they’ve crafted and perfected the ten songs that makeup “In Fine Feather”. After countless years of scenery flashing by the passenger window of life, the world finally slowed down for a moment. Everyone breathed deeply and counted their desires, their regrets. Hope dived and soared. Rivers browned for decades by human hindsight turned clear, animals began cautiously exploring their terraformed ancestral homes for the first time since industrialization, and every human being worldwide was cut off from their social networks and interpersonal lifelines–their friends, their families, their loves–had to learn how to garden in their own yard, for once.
Gabriel Seaver’s guitar playing is informed by the bio cosmos, water, sitting, walking, dancing, afro/latin rhythms, friends, minimalism, improvisation, traveling, loving, and listening.
