From bright windy ridges, to mysterious misty hollows, Eugene, Oregon is a place of great beauty. The music of Sugar Pine is similarly diverse, ranging from dark, haunting harmonies to soaring, electrically charged instrumental jams. An eclectic mix of original songs and unique takes on roots and bluegrass tunes create a high-energy force that will make you want to get up and dance.
Sugar Pine came together out of the local jam scene in Eugene and has morphed into one of the most popular live bands in the Willamette Valley. The band is comprised of Gabe Schliffer – fiddle and cello, Aaron Nelson – mandolin and guitar, Bonnie Doran – bass, and Jack Wheeler – guitar and dobro.
