The Abingdon Music Experience presents Thursday Jams with the Hackensaw Boys live at the Abingdon Farmers Market Pavilion on Thursday, July 31, 2014.
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. 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.
“There’s one thing you can count on at a Hackensaw Boys show—nobody will be standing still. The band’s rowdy old-time sound has been making crowds move for more than a decade. It’s a hybrid of Appalachian front porch simplicity delivered with edgy punk rock power.” Blue Ridge Outdoor Magazine
