Peddling a streetwise, subtly subversive mix of vintage Americana and potent original songwriting, West Virginia combo The Fox Hunt will return to Celtic Connections 2011 on Friday, January 14th at 8pm, after their debut Scottish shows last summer.
Bittersweet close harmonies, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and double bass are dynamically layered around a single condenser microphone, underpinned by masterly technique and memorable wordcraft.
Donegal sisters The Henry Girls, whose exquisite three-part vocals interweave their native traditions with blues, jazz and country, are one of Ireland’s top emerging folk acts, will appear on the same bill, reprising their recent live collaboration with The Fox Hunt in addition to their own set.
The Fox Hunt recordings available:
- In North America: Long Way to Go, Nowhere Bound, America’s Working So We Don’t Have to
