Wiseapple is an acoustic string band originally from Boone, North Carolina proudly continuing in the bluegrass tradition of Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, and Flatt and Scruggs. The band plays a mix of standard classics and original compositions featuring tight vocal harmonies and impressive musicianship. Formed in 1999, the group consists of Jon Hill on mandolin and vocals, Tim Marsh on guitar and vocals, Ben McPherron on bass fiddle, and Brian Swenk on banjo. In addition to bluegrass, the group enjoys arranging numbers by jazz greats such as Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Sonny Rollins as well as playing songs by important songwriters like Bob Dylan and Neil Young. No matter what style of music they choose to play, the group takes care to create fresh arrangements that have an original sound bearing their distinctive signature. At the beginning of 2003, the members of Wiseapple made the decision to focus on their songwriting skills and develop more original material. Drawing on their wide range of influences, each member has contributed songs reflecting many styles. The result is an eclectic blend of traditional and modern sounds that create a truly exciting listening experience.
