Pine Marten

Pine Marten: (l-r) Niall Hughes, Simon Guy, Paddy Kiernan

New young bands are springing up vigorously enough for keeping track of them to become a full-time job; so the BIB is grateful to the Dublin bluegrass grapevine for news of Pine Marten, a Dublin-based acoustic trio consisting of Simon Guy (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Paddy Kiernan (banjo, vocals), and Niall Hughes (double bass, vocals).

Pine Marten play a wide range of music, taking in bluegrass instrumentals, Scandinavian and Irish folk music, the Beatles, and more, including original compositions. They have been on Facebook (where videos from their performances at music venues around Dublin can be seen) since the start of April.
