About The Splinters
Combining bluegrass with country and old time, the Splinters offer an energetic take on traditional music. The Metro called the sound “bluegrass mayhem” (!) and they were listed as a “band to watch”, during the 2018 Somerville Porchfest by NBC Boston. The repertoire spans from haunting renditions of old songs to raucous bluegrass and fiddle tunes to more modern classics from some of the best songwriters out there.
The Splinters were formed by Berklee roommates Chris Reckling (guitar, vocals) and J Johnson (mandolin, vocals) in 2010, after spending many years playing rock, jazz, and folk music around Boston. They added Garrett Wallace (bass, vocals) in 2016 to keep the groove going and add a third harmony part. 2019 brought on fiddler Anne Rouillard to the mix. From there, they have been entertaining audiences all around Boston and the surrounding areas.
Recently, they were named finalists in the Thomas Point Beach Bluegrass Festival Band Competition.
