The Huckleberry Friends:

Founded in early 2012, The Huckleberry Friends were born out of a friendship that began with a common passion in music. A couple of jam sessions and late-night suppers were all it took for the trio to form between them a bond that will soon become irreplaceable. Starting out with event and wedding performances, the outfit has gone on to perform at the Esplanade Concourse, and, as part of a showcase upon coming in 2nd for a cover competition organized by The New Paper, at Timbre (Substation). They have since expanded their online presence, and are looking to work on original material in the future. The Huckleberry Friends thrive on just that—warm companionship and sincere smiles.

A harmony of folk and alternative, the trio brings to every performance an intimacy that is as sensitive as it is passionate. Between Jon’s eccentricities, Xueyi’s unforgettable laughter,
and Marcus’ unhurried nature, The Huckleberry Friends carry with them onstage an eclectic marriage of sonic textures and conversational charms. From nuanced acoustic numbers to throwbacks to the classics, everything is fair game—the outfit reinvents and recreates in a fashion that is playful and most definitely heartfelt.
