Hawktail and Vasen

Date: Saturday, October 28, 2023
Time: 7:00 pm

HAWKTAIL - This is not hyperbole: four of the best acoustic musicians in America have joined together to form Hawktail. We hesitate to call them a bluegrass or even a newgrass band because their virtuosity can’t be bound by one genre.

VÄSEN - The Swedish acoustic duo Väsen has a singular sound—a playful, yet accomplished interplay that seems to defy the laws of physics, an intensity with a great sense of humor, and modernity rooted in tradition. After almost 40 years of interaction and touring, Väsen has refined its sound and stage presence – today, they are unique in their kind.
