Pinebox Serenade

Pinebox Serenade

 Denton, Texas, USA

Fusion of musical inspiration that ranges from country swing to death metal to the heart and organs of dark folk and old bluegrass. With the idea that an eternal hell of heartfelt music might warrant the compromise of not sitting on a cloud forever playing trite pop songs on a three string lyre.


Guitarist Chris Welch and mandolin player Patrick Newkirk started Pinebox Serenade as an acoustic three-piece group with bluegrass leanings, playing their first shows in early 2004. Since then, the group has become one of Denton's larger groups, weighing in with seven members who each add a layer to the band's brand of dark acoustic folk.
