Pumpkin Bread is a 5-piece band based in Boston, MA that plays original folk music flavored with Celtic fiddling, spirited improvisations, and relentless groove. Brought together by their love for spontaneous music and baked goods, Pumpkin Bread began honing their sound in kitchen jams, pub sessions, and soup nights in the Boston area folk scene. With songs that range from pensive and heartfelt to driving and playful, every performance is dynamic and always gives you a sense of the band’s camaraderie and close knit friendship.
The band features Aidan Scrimgeour, Conor Hearn, Jackson Clawson, Maura Shawn Scanlin, and Steven Manwaring. All five members come from and perform regularly in different worlds of music, including Celtic, jazz, classical, bluegrass and funk.
