Regarded as some of the finest players of their generation, Mighty Poplar features Andrew Marlin (Watchhouse), Noam Pikelny and Chris Eldridge (Punch Brothers), Greg Garrison (Leftover Salmon) and Alex Hargreaves (Billy Strings). The true spirit of bluegrass infuses their self-titled debut album, a new all-star roots project, coming March 31 on Free Dirt Records. The group has captured the fierce and playful energy of an all-night jam between old friends who just happen to be grandmasters of the music.
Though Pikelny, Eldridge, Garrison all knew each other from their early work with Punch Brothers, impromptu backstage jams with Marlin at festivals across the country were the key that unlocked the project. It’s clear that each player joined out of pure excitement to play music with each other. There’s a level of curiosity and engagement that’s only found at the highest echelons of music making. What sets Mighty Poplar apart from the members’ full-time endeavors is that this band offers the opportunity to play pure genuine bluegrass. Ultimately, there was a kind of joy and relief in coming back to their roots in celebration and camaraderie.
