What is Acoustic Nomads?
Acoustic Nomads is a group of rising stars in the Northeast acoustic music scene, steeped in different musical idioms ranging from Jazz, Appalachian, Classical, and Celtic music all the way to Brazilian, Venezuelan, Argentinean, and Peruvian music. Acoustic Nomads’ sound is a result of the players harnessing their varied musical backgrounds and passions and exploring uncharted musical territory together. Following in the footsteps of world music giants like The Silk Road Project, Acoustic Nomads seeks to change the world through musical collaboration. Since forming at Berklee College of Music in 2019, they’ve played at the Grey Fox and Joe Val Bluegrass Festivals, the Hartford Jazz Society’s “Baby Grand” Concert Series, WBUR Cityspace in Boston, and at Club Passim in Cambridge. Their latest album, “The Abominable Stringband Vol. 1,” is out for streaming and purchase wherever you get your music!
Praise for Acoustic Nomads:
"These guys and gal are kicking it! So nice to see many of my Acoustic Music Seminar Alumni hooking up and carrying on with what we all share at the Savannah Music Festival each year. I feel like a proud papa. Well done, all!"
- Mike Marshall
"Acoustic Nomads' debut album is an inspiring display of brilliant solo and ensemble playing, as well as beautiful tune writing and arranging. This is a special group with a unique sound - definitely worth keeping an eye on this group!"
- Mike Block
"Having gotten to know some of these brilliant young folks from the Berklee College of Music, I was predisposed to loving this project before even hearing it. Needless to say, every expectation was met and this rich omnibus of savory musics is sure to garner many new fans. May this group have the long lifespan it richly deserves!"
- Tony Trischka
"In my mind, the marker of success for any project that fuses the styles of two or more cultures is achieving a body of work that feels unique without needing to call attention to its own novelty. Acoustic Nomads’ debut record “Acoustic Travelogue” is unplaceable and authentic in the best possible way. The rhythmic patterns of the cuatro fit seamlessly with a repertoire that balances jazz, contemporary string band and world music. I can’t wait to see where they go next!"
