Northern Lights, the Northeast’s superlative veteran string band, doesn’t qualify as typical traditionalist. But over a three-decade career, the band has created its own tradition – a constant exploration of new musical territory without ever losing its acoustic and vocal bearings. From 1990’s "Take You to the Sky," to 2005’s "New Moon" (Fifty-Fifty Music), the band has fused an eclectic mix of traditional roots music, rock, country, soul and gospel with the high, lonesome vocal sound and instruments of bluegrass.
