Rose & Thistle are performing powerhouse Sarah Hubbard (Flobots, Nobuo Uematsu, Harry Belafonte) and consummate composer Max Wolpert (Dream Theater, A.R. Rahman, Alison Brown). Together, our experience spans classical, jazz, old-time, Celtic, rock, Canadian, hip-hop, klezmer, and even more styles of music. Both graduates of the Berklee College of Music, we are accomplished composers and tunewriters, and craft creative and fresh arrangements to put a unique stamp on classic tunes.
Sarah and Max are also both serious nerds, and are very active in various "niche" fandoms. There's nothing we like better than assembling sets of tunes from the music of our favorite games, shows, and movies. Whether it's constructing arrangements of the classic themes from Star Wars, setting off to adventure through the music of the Legend of Zelda or Final Fantasy, or swinging through the jazzy songs of our musical hero KK Slider, Rose & Thistle are always keen to merge our love of music with the pop culture we love. If geek culture is near and dear to your heart and you want to make it a part of your special day, please let us know! We'd be happy to bring your favorite music to life.
We're a vibrant, eclectic strings duo in love with music, all things nerdy, and, well, each other.
