In 1974, three best friends just out of college, decided to take a different path and play old-time music together. They moved to a mountain-top cabin, learned to live off the land, and bonded as the Crooked Pine Band. The band hit the college circuit, played local and regional venues and dances, and traveled the eastern U.S. sharing traditional mountain music. 
The ebb and flow of family, career, and circumstance has simmered and seasoned Crooked Pine for forty years...   
In 2015, the Crooked Pine Band is serving up its signature edition. 
Craig Bannerman, Marion Boatwright, and Frank McConnell, now teamed with Madison County native Troy Harrison, present an energizing mix of mountain music-- Appalachian, early country, Americana, and original songs-- on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, dulcimer, and bass. Strong vocal harmony, tight instrumentation, and lively presentation are the hallmarks of Crooked Pine.
The Crooked Pine Band are regulars at local music rooms, festivals and street fairs, private parties and large corporate events. They are a highly-sought contra-dance and square-dance band, and are favorites at Asheville's Shindig-on-the-Green, and Mountain Dance and Folk Festival. The band has appeared in numerous promotional videos, and has an expanding YouTube presence. Their third album, "Branching Out", released early in 2015, is a high-energy collection of original and traditional mountain music, tinged with bluegrass and country swing.
