The Splinters, a bluegrass and old-time string band from Massachusetts, deliver a relentless groove to accompany their tight 3-part harmonies. Anne Rouillard (fiddle) brings the heat to her old-time influenced fiddle playing. J Johnson (mandolin) adds a jazzy flair to his breaks. Chris Reckling (guitar, banjo) picks solid rhythm and punchy leads on top of Garrett Wallace’s grooving bass fiddle. A Splinters set veers from straight ahead bluegrass to traditional fiddle tunes and back, with the occasional detour into a modern song. They released their first album as a quartet, “Grey Owl”, at the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival.
Formed in the spring of 2006, Johnny Ransom and Sam Reid recruited drummer JC Campbell for a string Sunday gigs and billed themselves as "modular bluegrass" or "un-pure bluegrass" to describe the sounds of Caribbean-inspired, rootsy original music blended with re-imagined traditional fiddle tunes. Aaron Goff joined in for several of these gigs and the recording of Dreaming the Life, in 2009. Joe Kessler joined the group in early 2010 and the band, featuring Tim Kelly on dobro recorded its second full-length record, "A Slow Burn" in 2011. The band continues to write and release music, the latest being Snow Day Waltz in February of 2023.
