At its heart, bluegrass music is about what happens when you commit to the moment. The joy of improvisation keeps the music fresh, and the fun of crafting ideas on the fly keeps the musicians on their toes. This true spirit of bluegrass infuses the self-titled record from Mighty Poplar, a new all-star roots project featuring Andrew Marlin of Watchhouse, Noam Pikelny and Chris Eldridge of Punch Brothers, bassist Greg Garrison (Leftover Salmon) and fiddler Alex Hargreaves (Billy Strings) coming March 31, 2023 on Free Dirt Records. Regarded as some of the finest players of their generation, the playing is never showy and always in service of the song. 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. A lifelong song collector, Marlin selected and sang lead on most of the songs here, bringing classics as well as deep cuts from greats like Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard, John Hartford, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Norman Blake. Throughout, the songs and tunes are as immediate and emotionally impactful as the playing is tasteful. Gathered knee-to-knee in a rural studio outside Nashville, the collaborative 10-track album emerged organically over a few days. “It felt so special and effortless; it didn’t take work,” says Eldridge, “other than the work and effort we’ve put in the rest of our lives.” With their debut album, Mighty Poplar has captured the fierce and playful energy of an all-night jam between old friends who just happen to be grandmasters of the music.

    This looks AMAZING! I’ve seen almost all of the members of this project separately but can’t imagine what they would sound like together. It’s like an All-Star game for bluegrass magicians haha. Also, VASEN is SOOOOO crazy good so I’m assuming they would be sitting in with them for a few songs too??? Either way, this looks 10000% up my alley and would LOVE to go 😉

    Not going to lie, I am slowly getting into the bluegrass genre as that’s my boyfriend’s favorite and I am not just falling in love with him along this journey! This music keeps growing in me and I cannot resist the urge to know more! I would love to surprise my boyfriend with these tickets and keep falling in love with both bluegrass and him at my favorite venue! I feel like stars already aligned 😌🥹

    Omg, this event looks AMAZING! Not going to lie, I am learning bluegrass genre from my boyfriend as it is his favorite genre! So, I am not only falling in love with him along the way, but also bluegrass is simply stealing my heart over and over again! On top of that, this event is at my favorite venue in Portland! How can it get any better than this? Feels like stars are already aligning ✨😌

    My boyfriend loves bluegrass and it makes me feel so jiggly when we dance together…even if I don’t know the band very well. I’d love to go and experience more things in Portland because I just moved here 6 months ago from CA 🙂
