Spuyten Duyvil
Seeing a Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE+vul") show for the first time is like "throwing a cherry bomb into a lake" (Rich Warren, WFMT). It wakes you up. Their brand of original and traditional American Roots music blends Olde Time, Blues, 2nd Line, Bluegrass, and Folk Rock with a pinch of Punk Rock energy to create a uniquely modern mix. Lead by song-writing couple, Mark Miller and Beth Kaufman, this six piece powerhouse brings barn burning energy to venues throughout the East Coast and Midwest. Drop them on a large festival stage and they electrify the crowd. Place them in a listening room and their stripped down acoustic sets connect powerfully.

Yonkers, NY based Spuyten Duyvil are the real deal when it comes to roots revivalist Americana music. Historians, outstanding songwriters, accomplished musicians and a musical family atmosphere converge to make some of the most outstanding music around today.
Riding high on their International Folk Music Awards Album Of The Year nomination, 2016 was a year of great adventures for Spuyten Duyvil.

Their American Embassy backed tour of Israel featured two headlining sets at the Jacob's Ladder Festival on the Sea of Galilee.  US dates found the band playing intimate acoustic house concerts, rockin' electric sets on big festival stages and every kind of place in between. In addition to many return engagements (Philly Folk Fest, Caramoor's ARMF, New Bedford FF), they debuted headlining the South Florida Folk Festival, in Vermont at Roots On The River and shared the main stage of Long Island's Great South Bay Music Festival with Blues Traveler. Past venues of note include Citi Field, The Krannart Center For The Performing Arts, Levitt Pavilions Steel Stacks, Musikfest, Clearwater, and the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.
In showcasing the music of Mississippi John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotten, Woody Guthrie and Big Bill Broonzy here and abroad, the album's title has become a guiding philosophy. "Social Music" represents Spuyten Duyvil's commitment to sharing stages, engaging creatively with friends and strangers and taking tradition off the pedestal into the here and now. Reinventing traditional songs, they honor the folk process and transform the audience from listeners to participants and owners.
