We have Hillfolk Noir live at Whiskey Jacques Saturday December 22nd. Doors open at 9p.m. For info on the bands website at http://www.hillfolknoir.com/ Guaranteed to be an awesome night, and we are glad to have them back at Whiskey’s.
Fronted by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Travis Ward, Hillfolk Noir’s peculiar take on traditional acoustic mountain music is filtered through a half-century of folk, country and rock ‘n’ roll and fed by an affinity for medicine show culture and Depression-era string-band blues. The band calls it Junkerdash, which has multiple definitions up to and including “psychedelic swamp-shack rags.” However, if you’re looking for something neat and tidy to place in print or casual conversation, feel free to use current music-journalism parlance and call it “indie folk.”
