Self-described as “rhythm and bluegrass,” Bitter Pill is a tight-knit family, (literally father and daughter) who play a dark and anachronistic twist of folk, blues, jazz, and vaudeville – mixed with original spoken word as well as reading from classical literature. They released their first album, “Prepare Your Throats,” in the fall of 2018. It is a collection of traditional and original songs from the soundtrack of their staging of William Shakespeare’s violent, bloody, grotesquely ridiculous abomination of a play, “Titus Andronicus.”
Their new album, “Desperate Times on the New Hampshire State Line”, due out June 2020 is a whimsical collection of foot stompin’, hand clappin’, spirited cross-genre tunes.
“Exhilarated. Stimulated.” NHPR
“Prepare Your Throats is intriguing, creative, humorous, raw and not all that wholesome. Two mighty severed thumbs up.” Modspoke.com
“There’s a lot to love about this record (Prepare Your Throats).” Chris Hislop
