Tenrec


Tenrec

Tenrec formed in the winter of 2000 as a trio with Richard Burchard, Steven Shuff Jr., and Noah Sorota. Their debut album, Apples in Winter, combined traditional Irish tunes and original songs.

More recently, the lineup has expanded to include Karsten Nelson and Kyle Neumann. At the time of the band’s 2003 Mixed Media visit, Tenrec was working on its second recording. While the Celtic tradition is still very noticeable, the band’s style gives new life to melodies that are hundreds of years old by blending in elements of rock and bluegrass. Driving percussion and guitars support the sweet melodies of the whistle and violin, making Tenrec’s music a truly unique experience.
