News From Bree is a South Florida-based trio: Adam on guitar, banjo, flute, and vocals; Samuel on guitar, baritone ukulele, and (usually lead) vocals; Derek on bass and vocals. The name “News From Bree” comes from the ninth chapter of The Fellowship of the Ring:

Though they initially entered the local music scene playing only folk/bluegrass-inspired renditions of popular covers, the group released their first original song “Barrow Downs” on Bandcamp in August 2020.
