Bands announced for Hoedown concert
HAWLEY, PA — The Hawley Harvest Hoedown Bluegrass & Folk Concert, which will take place on Saturday, October 13, has named the bands that will be featured at the event: The Hickory Project, Serene Green and Man About a Horse. The event is the traditional conclusion to the annual Hawley Harvest Hoedown festival, and will take place at 7:30 p.m. at The Ritz Theater, 512 Keystone St.
Formed in 2001, Hickory Project features hard-driving traditional and original acoustic music deeply rooted in bluegrass. The band is known for its genre-jumping unpredictability, mixing Celtic, jazz, swing, Appalachian and blues with brilliant harmony vocals.
Serene Green is a four-piece bluegrass band from Northeastern Pennsylvania. This band’s passion for playing bluegrass comes from a position of respect and gratitude for the pioneers of this great music—such as Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs—but Serene Green performances are anything but an imitation.
Man About a Horse combines strong ties to the bluegrass tradition with a progressive streak that informs their original songwriting and unorthodox song selections. Their music reflects the wide range of influences on this Philadelphia-based band, from blues and rock to classical and pop, all blended together by a traditional bluegrass lineup.
