The Faux Paws
Eclectic folk trio with a joyful and distinctive sound that draws on bluegrass, roots, jazz and pop.
From raging fiddle tunes to saxophone solos and unrequited love songs, the music of The Faux Paws would be hard to pin down with standard genre descriptions. The trio’s contagious groove, and feel-good melting pot folk music has been honed over ten years of playing together, and is the sound of three close friends who feel a musical kinship that transcends any stylistic limitations. Brothers Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand grew up playing contra dance music with their musician mother in the band Great Bear. Chris Miller grew up in Florida, and he was enamored with bluegrass, and studied jazz before going on to play with GRAMMY nominated Cajun-country band The Revelers. Since meeting in 2012, the trio has toured across North America several times, sometimes under the name The Faux Paws, sometimes as part of other larger ensembles. Catch this trio tonight.
