The Hackensaw Boys

Country, Bluegrass, Folk, Punk, Rock
The Hackensaw Boys combine the primitive strains of old-time mountain and string band music with modern-day sensibilities. Their music, while drawing upon the spirit of the mountains, is sophisticated and informed by the best elements of punk rock and classic country music. As one reviewer put it: "Imagine the Carter Family meets the Ramones," and you begin to get the picture. The eight-member group has shared the stage with acts ranging from the Flaming Lips to De La Soul.
