From their handpainted cereal box cd cases to their thoughtful arrangements, Poor Old Shine, a Roots/Americana band from Storrs, CT is about honesty and hand crafted creativity. It’s foot stomping, mind racing, dirty, down home Americana. They travel with an assortment of instruments including guitars, banjos, pump organ, mandolin, string bass, musical saw, washboard, and a yard-sale-scrap-metal drum set. It’s old songs with a new feel, banjos with paint peeled, shoes with holes and treadless soles, and music that is real.
The music is rooted in the folk and Appalachian mountain music tradition and fits in well at bluegrass festivals and sticky rock clubs alike. They have been compared favorably to The Band, John Prine, and Johnny Cash. Each set mixes the band’s original songwriting with traditional folk ballads, prison work songs, and front porch style jamming.
Poor Old Shine features Chris Freeman (banjo), Max Shakun (guitar, pump organ), Antonio Alcorn (Mandolin), Harrison Goodale (Bass). Since forming at University Of Connecticut in 2011, Poor Old Shine has played to sellout crowds at some of the best venues in Southern New England including Infinity Music Hall (Norfolk, CT), Bridge Street Live (Collinsville, CT), Toads Place (New Haven, CT), The Lizard Lounge (Cabridge, MA), The Kate(Old Saybrook), and the Millennium Stage Stage at the Kennedy Center (DC). They performed at the Emerging Artist Showcase at the 2012 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Green River Festival, and was awarded the CT State award from the New England Music Awards 2013.
