Not everything about Covid have been negative. Here is a new band that has forms as a direct result – Wolfpen Branch.
Kentucky once again produces a compelling collaboration of musicians with the introduction of Wolfpen Branch, a true pandemic born band. In fact, according to Arthur Hancock, the group’s guitarist, the band members would not have gotten together and formed the band had it not been for the Covid-19 national shutdowns bringing a screeching halt to their other full time projects. Today, Wolfpen Branch is releasing their first single Don’t Have A Clue, an original song written by band member, Chris Shouse, worldwide.
The band consists of: Arthur Hancock IV on guitar and backing vocal; Chris Shouse on mandolin and vocal; Roddy Puckett on bass; Kati Penn on fiddle; Aaron Bibelhauser on banjo and backing vocal.
Recognized as a band to watch in 2021 by the Lexington Herald Leader, the group has landed on a new name, created new recordings, and presents a fresh unified voice to the industry. Wolfpen Branch combines some of Kentucky’s most powerful young singers and award winning songwriters, with a raucous instrumental approach that serves their songs up with a heaping helping of groove.
Wolfpen Branch is the fire and smoke of bluegrass music. They honor the tradition of the forefathers, yet create their own path when they are up on stage. Kentucky’s musical spirit is alive and well with the sounds of Wolfpen Branch. – Jessica Blankenship, Music Journalist & Founder at Kentucky Country Music
