The Devil’s Box supplies a revisionist-western take on fiddle tunes from around the world using energetic and eclectic music rooted in the styles of bluegrass and folk.
The Devil’s Box creates a cinematic blend of bluegrass, country and folk that suggests a higher than average pedigree. Two-beat Cajun stomps, break-neck bluegrass, haunting gypsy laments and cranked out Celtic jigs all get twisted, bent and melted down to become burning masses of fiddle heat.
Distilling the essence of Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs and Bob Wills into a heady spirit of moaning fiddle, burbling banjo, dandelion mandolins and high-lonesome harmonies, Chris Murphy’s raging fiddle and lead vocals drive The Devil’s Box. Lovers of folk, rock, jazz and exciting lively music will all appreciate The Devil’s Box. They appear with anywhere from two to six musicians.
