The Pine Hearts rock out bluegrassy originals
Alternative bluegrass band performs at Sculpterra Winery
The Pine Hearts will take the stage at Sculpterra Winery, located at 5015 Linne Road in Paso Robles, as part of a Songwriters At Play showcase from 1-4 p.m. on Feb. 9.
Yes, there’s a banjo in the lineup, but The Pine Hearts are an alternative (some say “y’all-ternative”) bluegrass band from Olympia,WA made up of Joe Capoccia (guitar/vocals), Lob Strilla (banjo/vocals), Derek McSwain (mandolin/vocals), and drummer Austin Cooper. Their style is based in traditional mountain music, infused with elements of Cajun/ zydeco, indie-rock, folk and country. Check out more info on the band at thepinehearts.bandcamp.com.
