Energetically playing bluegrass and roots music with all the abandon of a rock band, Virginia’s Hackensaw Boys took their name from the way they tended to hack and saw at their instruments. After establishing themselves locally, the group got their first national exposure in 2002 as part of the Unlimited Sunshine Tour, holding their own alongside eclectic tourmates like Modest Mouse and De La Soul.

The Hackensaw Boys are back with their new self-titled album. Known for their energetic live shows, the band have been operating as a sort of musical collective for over two decades now, carving a songline that traverses all genres of American roots music. Hackensaw Boys is full of classic, catchy Hackensaw sounds while achieving a new level of unapolegetic honesty and vulnerability via frontman Sickmen’s well-honed, salt-of-the-earth songwriting.

Support: The Sensational Second Cousins
The Sensational Second Cousins are a duo from Klazienaveen using the guitar as weapon of choice. Besides that they’ll bring their own DIY drumkit, a set of golden throats and the occasional kazoo to give you the time of your life! Their music is best described when you put Hasil Adkins and Elvis Presley in the same room getting drunk with Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Eddie Cochran, resulting into an authentic blend of garagerockabilly and whisky.

Their debut single ‘Until You’re Satisfied’ has been received as the best rockabilly single of the century by Jan Kooi! Since the release of their debut record ‘Earthquake’, they were playing gig after gig across the globe. After three years of radio silence, it’s gonna be sensational once again!
