    Poor Old Shine

     Fresh from composing original music and performing as part of the American Repertory Theater’s The Heart of Robin Hood, Poor Old Shine brings their fantastic sound to OBERON for one night only! Poor Old Shine is a roots band with a grassroots ethos. The Connecticut quintet prizes the human element that underpins their music, from songwriting to recording to album design and even choice of record label: Poor Old Shine released its self-titled debut studio LP, recorded with Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Joy Kills Sorrow), Nov. 5, 2013 on Signature Sounds. Formed at the University of Connecticut, where singer and banjo player Chris Freeman met banjo and mandolin player Antonio Alcorn in a folk music club on campus, an early version of Poor Old Shine landed its first gig — opening for a friend’s band at the legendary New Haven club Toad’s Place—before the musicians had even decided what to call themselves.
