Crooked Still, the five-member alternative bluegrass group from Boston, will return to the Strand Theatre Friday, Nov. 28, at 7:30 p.m. for their first reunion performance since 2012. Tickets are on sale now.

After a decade of constant activity, the members of Crooked Still decided to take a break from touring in 2012 in order to pursue other projects and recharge creatively. One year quickly became three as vocalist Aoife O'Donovan made an acclaimed solo CD; banjo player Greg Liszt toured and recorded with his band the Deadly Gentlemen; and bassist Corey DiMario, fiddler Brittany Haas and cellist Tristan Clarridge all collaborated with a long list of acoustic music’s top artists.

Crooked Still’s innovative style has also been called Americana and "unconventional folk." The band is known for its high energy, technical skill, unusual instrumentation and innovative acoustic style. Crooked Still has released six albums.

For the first time since 2012, Crooked Still will reunite for three special New England shows on Nov. 28 through. The first performance will take place at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., followed by shows at the Sinclair in Cambridge, Mass.; and the Academy of Music Theater in Northampton, Mass.

Tickets are $20 in advance and will be $23 day of show, general admission. To buy tickets or for more information on all upcoming live concerts, films, HD broadcasts and events at the Strand, visit; call 594-0070, ext. 3; or email
