What’s their deal?: Pineross, the musical project of Kevin Larkin, has received national acclaim since his solo debut album was released in 2006. Larkin, a former Boulder resident, picked up mandolin after watching an Irish jam session around these parts and honed his skills on the road, touring for years with Mississippi bluegrass outlaws the Mayhem String Band. His newest album, Detached, will be released this month, complete with an all-star cast of local musicians.
