Hackensaw Boys are coming back in April and May26-01-2015
It has been a time with ups- and downs for our friends of the Hackensaw Boys. They recently had to decide on rescheduling some of their February performances in the US. In a seemingly unexplainable coincidence, nature has seen to it that two members of the boys will undergo thyroid surgery later this month. These surgeries are supposed to be in and out procedures with the guys taking minimum time off. On a brighter note the Hackensaw Boys have been recording their long-awaited follow up studio album.
We expect to have more details on this soon, which is slightly delayed because of the above. Other good news is the announcement of their April / May tourdates in Europe. Last week we could announce their appearance at the new rootsfestival Down By The River in Venlo and we can add the underneath dates TODAY!
With feet firmly planted in the old-time song tradition, hands soiled by the dirt of rock n’ roll and eyes fixed steadily on the future of real country music, the Hackensaw Boys are among the most exciting groups charting new territory in today’s diverse Americana music scene. How does it work? Everybody sings a bit of lead, everybody sings a bit of harmony and most members know when to shut up. Instrumentation includes banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica, upright bass, charismo (a home-made tin can contraption) and the occasional trap kit. The band has just posted "The Hangman", for y'all to get in the mood!
