Tumbling Bones is a trio of young men inspired by old music.  They play a mix of original compositions and traditional material drawing on bluegrass, pre-WWII folk, and a bit of the contemporary rock n roll the guys were reared on.  They make their music with nothing but acoustic instruments, tap shoes, and most of all, their voices.

Founding members Pete Winne (guitar, foot percussion) and Jake Hoffman (banjo, upright bass) met ten years ago when they were randomly assigned freshman year as college roommates. They formed Tumbling Bones in 2011 and in early 2013 joined forces with songwriter and guitarist Kyle Morgan.  This new lineup has allowed the band to do what they love best—sing in dynamic three-part harmony—and to create a distinct sound by weaving Morgan’s original songs in with their passion for traditional American music.  These road warriors have sung on street corners and stages across Europe and the United States. Members of the band have performed on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.  Their debut EP, Risk Not Your Soul, cracked the Top 10 on the Roots Music Report’s folk radio chart.  In 2013 they were chosen as finalists for the extremely selective American Musicians Abroad program, a U.S. State Department-funded project that sends American bands overseas to perform and lead music workshops for students.  Their first full-length album was recorded this past September in an 18th century farmhouse in their home state of Maine.  Loving a Fool, half original and half traditional songs with a Tumbling Bones stamp, is scheduled for US release in June 2014 and Europe in April 2014.
