The Harkenbacks – “The Mongrel”

SF’s Bluegrass and Old Time music festival will host The Harkenbacks‘ CD release party at Cafe du Nord this coming Tuesday, January 15th. The Get Down Boys headline, with two other acts (Melody Walker and Jacob Groopman and Outbound) rounding out what should be a heaping helping of rowdy roots music.

A local supergroup of sorts, The Harks boast twin lead vocals from Cory Dodson, who has appeared with numerous Bay Area country-fried bands, and Ray Wilcox, gunslinger and music impresario extraordinaire. Paul McElwee on fiddle and mandolin, and Jeremy Steinmeier on upright bass, round out the flavor.

They take their country and bluegrass roots deep into the singer-songwriter tradition on their new release, Farmless. Beat the bitter cold with some mountain style house music!
