What’s better than a dog? A dog playing a musical instrument. Introducing: Acoustic Trench – a musical duo consisting of Trench, a musician, and his dog Maple. A multi-instrumentalist, Trench can play the guitar, harp, cello, and a dozen other instruments, while Maple tags along, sometimes “playing” the drums, other times intently listening.
The results are viral videos of a dog and a talented musician. And yes, it’s as good as it sounds. The two cover popular songs and hits (including some of our favorite rock and roll tunes) and have a huge catalog of music videos that they post on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.
In some of their more recent videos, you can also spot another member of the family: a rescue pup named Cherry. “She’s very shy & timid as she had a tough life before adoption but with lots of love and patience she’s learning to trust again and she has become very attached to Maple,” Trench wrote on his Twitter page. “She’s tiny and sweet, she’s Cherry.”
You can support this musical duo on Patreon, where you’ll also be able to download mp3s of all of their music. Here are some of our favorite covers by them:
