A bluesy folk duo featuring John Putnam and Mike Visceglia
The Pine Cats are John Putnam and Mike Visceglia, longtime friends and musical colleagues with four decades of history together. They have played with renowned artists including Madonna, Suzanne Vega, Cher, John Denver, Richard Shinedell and Jackson Brown. In 2020, John and Mike found themselves serendipitously sequestered just several miles apart in the Catskills. With a porch big enough for the two to play 6 feet apart, a new acoustic duo was born.
The Pine Cats are fueled by John’s original music, as well as a collection of blues and folk classics performed on guitar and bass. Since then they have done Live stream shows from DreamLand Studios in Woodstock NY, St.John’s In The Village, in NYC, as well as live -in-person performances at The Station in Woodstock and NYC’s The Bitter End.
