About The Opined Few
In the spring of 2015, multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Scott Heron, Steve DeLong and Bob Jubert came together to form The Opined Few to share in their passion for American roots music. The band has since performed regularly throughout their home state of New Hampshire and the surrounding New England area. In early 2016, the band recruited fiddle player and singer Betsy Green, one quarter of the Massachusetts sister-group, The Green Sisters.
The band's down-home sound resonates familiarly, drawing influences from American folk, blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll. The quartet delivers high-energy and passionate performances often while huddled around a single condenser microphone. Their brilliant, three-part harmonies coupled with an array of stringed instruments coalesce beautifully, offering a raucous, electrified experience while still remaining a purely acoustic act.
Armed with an eclectic repertoire of original music, The Opined Few released their 5-song, self-titled debut album in May 2016. They plan on recording and releasing a follow-up, full-length album in 2017.
