about us
We play folk tunes - compelling Celtic-influenced melodies, friendly old-time tunes, haunting Scandinavian songs - accented with influences from world music, swing, and popular tunes, all driven by a lively rhythmic flow. We specialize in playing for contradances, English country dance, and other community dances, and we're known for our tune arrangements that match the music to the figures of the dance, molding the dance energy and raising the dancers' spirits.

Entwyned is John Paolillo on mandolin-family instruments (including mandola, bouzouki, and mandocello) and Twy Bethard on fiddle, nyckelharpa, and keyboard. Audiences find our musical menagerie intriguing.

We're based in central Indiana and tour nationally.
