We choose our songs carefully - and so should you. The Splinters have been known to play at bars, cafes, sidewalks, parks, farmers markets, churches, ponds, open mics, private and not so private parties. 2 people, 2 instruments, we make music that people like.
J Johnson (mandolin, vocals) and Chris Reckling (guitar, vocals) are The Splinters. We play bluegrass, fiddle tunes, swing, and Americana music, adding our own unique spin to the classics. Our influences include Doc Watson, Norman Blake, Tony Rice, David Grisman, OCMS, Gillian Welch, Bill Frisell, Duke Ellington, Chris Thile, Frank Zappa, and many others.
