The Pitch Pines was founded in 2016 by Brian, Marisa, and Patrick Corry. We wanted to form a group to provide a mellow and diverse repertoire of acoustic covers for local venues and parties and have fun in the process! Our music incorporates 3-part vocal harmony, flowing improvisational jams, and rhythmic strumming. Our unique arrangements of classic covers are never the same performance twice. We love to take requests and interact with fellow music lovers!
