PigPen Theatre Co.
"Acoustic guitar, accordion, harmonies and enough Brit-folk melodies to make Mumford & Sons jealous"–American Songwriter ... "A Redmoon spectacle multiplied by a Decemberists concert."–Time Out Chicago ... PigPen Theatre Co. was one of the breakout acts of the 2014 Ann Arbor Folk Festival. They began creating their unique brand of music, film, and theatre as freshmen at the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama in 2008. Their debut indie-folk album, “Bremen”, was featured by American Songwriter and was named the number-ten album of the year in The Huffington Post’s2012 Grammy preview. They were also the first group to win the NYC Fringe Festival’s top honor for a play two years in a row in 2010 and 2011, and produced several original plays off-Broadway ,earning them critic’s picks from The New York Times, Time Out New York, New York Magazine and more– ranking them among the top ten theatrical events of both 2011 and 2012. PigPen is thrilled to be developing their debut children’s novel with Writers House, one of the world’s leading young adult literary agencies, while they are on tour as a band.
