A Bit of Press…
“The seams of the music: a deeply rooted country sensibility, a colorful cast of singers and musicians, a sense of humour, and threads bound to punk rock just as much as country and folk music. What stands at the apex of this group though is the original song writing.” Lucidforge Arts and Entertainment Websource
“One never doubts the Hackensaw Boys are giving you everything they have in them. It’s refreshing in a world of half measures and empty talk. They have their sights on the right things and it always comes through in their music.” (JamBase)
“Even when this Charlottesville band employs ancient Appalachian motifs, they never pretend to be something they’re not.” (Geoffrey Himes writing in the Oxford American 2007 Southern Music issue)
