The Moss Piglets have a unique high energy modern take on oldtime/bluegrass, along with hints of blues, rock, country, and reggae, featuring creative original music and tasty cover tunes.  The band typically uses the retro style single mic technique with purely acoustic instruments. This arrangement provides an honest sound and dynamic stage show, from house party to stadium.

The band features group harmonies, banjos, mandolins, melodica, hurdy gurdy, saw, acoustic and resonator guitars, standup bass, washtub bass, uke bass, recorders, harmonica, guitalele, trombone, turkey baster and Siberian husky.

We have a brand spanking new CD for summer 2015, Liar's Waltz - check the music page for a taste - as well as three previous albums.  All the CDs and MP3 tracks are available for purchase at the CDBaby link on this page.

The new CD, at last! 

Liar's Waltz, the first new Piglets CD in seven years, is out at last!  Lots of scrumptious originals, with a handful of tasty traditionals tossed in.  We recorded it with Ric Lee at Arcata Northeast, and we're damn happy with it.  Hope you will be too.

Yehsss, master 

OMG, mastering is complete on the new CD!  Ric kept laboring on the mixes right up to the 11th hour, and we just can't say enough about the quality, and sheer effing quantity, of effort he's put into this.  But the moment finally comes to tighten down the bolts and hand it over.  We got to watch Greg at Rare Form Mastering work, and it was insanely cool.  There is some great cookin' on this thing, and it's headed for production soon.  No fooling this time - there really will be a new Moss Piglets CD out this summer.
