The Hermit Tree is an eclectic acoustic group based out of Tucson, Arizona. Melding influences of American traditional music and folk-rock, The Hermit Tree offers a refreshingly new acoustic sound and dynamic live performances. The Hermit Tree began as a celtic jam band at the University of Arizona, playing at local pubs and street corners. However, the group's passion for other genres and musical exploration quickly expressed itself through new and exciting interpretations of Applachian, Bluegrass, and fiddle tunes and a rapidly expanding repertoire of original material that challenges categorization. With a new 14 track album of original songs, The Hermit Tree continues to bring roots-oriented songs to new audiences and new times. Featuring the two-time Arizona state fiddling champion and an award-winning bluegrass vocalist, The Hermit Tree offers a fresh, relaxed sound for fans of traditional and progressive music.
