Bark Point.

Bark Point. is a Minnesota based folk and bluegrass 4-piece string band consisting of Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo and Bass. The band began in late summer of 2021 after a string of second hand instrument purchases when the band's founder/songwriter (Adam Hildebrandt) purchased a 1960's open back banjo and a 1990's Epiphone F-style Mandolin. Hildebrandt hadn't played any bluegrass music before and he filled the band’s line up with other newcomers to the genre, including bassist Charlie Wichman and mandolinist Dylan Breyer who also happen to play bass and electric guitar in a Twin Cities alternative rock band.

Since forming, the band has released two EP’s that have amassed over 400,000 digital streams. Bark Point. is currently featured alongside some of the country’s best grass acts on Spotify Editorial Playlists such as Indie Bluegrass, New Grass and Bluegrass Covers. 

While the band is currently based in the city of Minneapolis, the group has strong Northland ties to the Twin Ports (Duluth and Superior) as they even drew their name “Bark Point.” from a scenic peninsula located on the South Shore of Lake Superior in the town of Herbster Wisconsin a few miles south of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. 

Keep an eye out for new music as Bark Point. is set to release their debut 7-song album in July of 2024.
