Head For The Hills
Halloween looms, and while most avid local music-goers are planning extravagant costumes for the Hallow’s Eve bash of their choice; last weekend the Fox Theatre hosted a rousing 2-night stand by growing “newgrass” favorites Greensky Bluegrass. Hailing from Michigan, these guys throw a range of soulful bluegrass originals, standards, and playful classic covers out on any given night.
Colorado quartet Head for the Hills will celebrate Halloween night in Denver, CO at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom on October 31st. Special guests Gangstagrass, known for their Emmy nominated theme song for the FX television series "Justified," will support the evening.
On the heels of their newly released studio album "Blue Ruin," Colorado newgrass quartet Head for the Hills embarks on their 2013 Fall Tour. The dates take them through Colorado, the Midwest, Mulberry Mountain Harvest Festival, the Mountain West and Pacific Northwest.
The group's Fall outing follows a busy summer, which included stops at many premier music festivals: RockyGrass, Northwest String Summit, DEL YEAH and many more.
Sometimes I find it truly incredible how different each festival is. Sure, when you poke around in different genres you’re going to have a different vibe, but even within the realm of strings and grass, you’ll find the good and you’ll find the bad. Northwest String Summit at Horning’s Hideout in Oregon doesn’t exactly make it into either category. I think it stands alone in the “this is the most amazing, beautiful, compelling, warming, etc.
Head for the Hills is pleased to announce their third studio album, Blue Ruin, releases July 9th, 2013. Blue Ruin sees the Colorado quartet fusing bluegrass, jazz, hip-hop and indie rock into songs inspired by love and misery and comic books. Think Meta-fictional sea shanties, pop-infused newgrass murder ballads and urbane lyricism, twang and punch.
Get on the Bus! Pickin’ on the Poudre is the quintessential Mishawaka BOOMshakalaka! Awkward as that may seem to describe the Fort Collins bluegrass quartet Head for the Hills composed of Adam Kinghorn (Guitar), Michael Chappell (Mandolin), Joe Lessard (Fiddle), and Matt Loewen (Bass), it’s appropriate. For nine years, H4TH has blown away Cache la Poudre patrons with their acrobatic backwoods antics.
