The Poinsett Piano Trio was formed in 2008 by David Gross (cello), Deirdre Hutton (violin), and Christopher Hutton (piano). All three members live in Greenville, South Carolina and teach at Furman University, a liberal arts college with a strongly performance-oriented music program.

The ensemble is named in honor of Joel Roberts Poinsett, a 19th-century statesman, physician, and botanist from South Carolina. Poinsett is most remembered today as the discoverer of the Mexican Poinsettia plant, whose bright red flowers are popularly included in festive Christmas decorations throughout the world.
