The Story Parlor Fri Dec 2 Asheville, North Carolina (full band) Tickets
“Tina & Her Pony deliver a gentle folk music that inexorably swells into a powerful wave. The songs themselves carry a gentle wisdom that invigorates the listener. Tina & Her Pony truly commit to a kind of chamber folk that feels as timeless as it does timely.”
– Rachel Cholst, NO DEPRESSION
Indie Appalachian Folk Band Tina and Her Pony began in Asheville, North Carolina in 2009. Shortly thereafter, the band spent two years holed up in the high desert mountain town of Taos, New Mexico, becoming one of the iconic artist colony’s most beloved performing acts. Tina and Her Pony released their full length, eponymous debut in March 2012. After an 18 month album release tour spanning the United States and Canada, they established a new home base in Asheville, NC and began recording their album “Champion” at Echo Mountain Recording Studio (2017). Stay tuned for a fresh full length album “Marigolds” (2022). Though originally founded as a duo by Tina Collins and Quetzal Jordan, these days the band is centered solely around the songwriting of front woman Tina Collins, a classically trained musician who first toured with her band Over Under Yonder, a five piece that played songs from Collins’ debut album Journey Onward (2009). Collins composed the songs that appear on Journey Onward as she thru-hiked from Maine to Georgia on the Appalachian Trail. When Over Under Yonder finished touring in 2010, the band reformed as Tina and Her Pony. Collins’ songwriting incorporates complexities in harmony and arrangement that queer the American folk tradition. Their unique sound draws inspiration from artists such as Gillian Welch, Sarah Jarosz and Watchhouse.
