"Favorite Bluegrass Band: Hollow Turtle"

Hollow Turtle bucks the trends of folk rock moving into the world of saccharine, overly commercial pop ballads. Old-school style brings new-world grief to light in their careening, tightly wound vocal harmonies. Relentless strumming and plucking from the string section lifts the harrowed singing to great heights. Even the most steadfast bluegrass disparager will find their foot tapping when Hollow Turtle gets to it. - Motif Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.



Since 2012, Hollow Turtle has been crafting songs together and developing a bluegrass style all their own. With Alfie Purcell on guitar, James Cappelletti on banjo, Joe Cappelletti on the upright bass, and Ben Richard sawing the fiddle, they bring a ruckus to a traditional style, while tying it all together with tightly wound vocal harmonies
