Sprig of That is a tabla, fiddle, and guitar trio playing a hearty Midwest-raised and globally-inspired acoustic stew. In February 2023, they released “bloom”, their full-length, all-original debut album, produced by Wes Corbett (Sam Bush Band, Joy Kill Sorrow) and engineered/mixed by Dave Sinko (Punch Brothers, Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer), recorded at Nashville’s legendary Sound Emporium studios over the course of a week in December 2021. Formed in Minneapolis, MN in 2018, the group has spent the last five years making a name for themselves across the country: playing legendary venues like Seattle’s Tractor Tavern, Minneapolis’ Cedar Cultural Center and NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall, sharing the stage with artists like Charlie Parr and Emilia Amper, and collaborating with organizations like Carnegie Hall, Minnesota Public Radio, and the Mile of Music Music Education Team to give educational workshops across the country. In 2021, they released “Eight Threads,” a cross-genre collaboration comprising 8 compositions written for the trio by eight very different Twin Cities-based music makers that was accompanied by an eight episode self-produced podcast. In addition to “bloom” and “Eight Threads”, they have also released two EPs of original compositions and arrangements: “Sprig of That” in 2019 and “Untold” in 2020. With an album comprising their best work yet and dates booked across the country, 2023 is looking to be the biggest year yet for Sprig. Grateful for what has been and excited for what’s to come, Sprig is, in a word, ready to bloom.
