The Hackamores (Western Swing)

December 8, 2012 @ 8:00 pm

Opener – Charlie Ewing

Bringing together a number of veteran performers from the Calgary country, blues and gypsy jazz scenes in a shared love of western swing – performing original songs and tunes from the repertoires of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Merle Travis, Floyd Tillman, Ray Price….

Calgary Folk Fest : “When The Hackamores say they swing, believe ‘em. As their music glides over lightly treaded trails of country swing, the band swings a wide loop that captures traditional tunes from the 1800s, honky tonk gems from the 1900s, and modern truths penned by band members as recently as the last time they emptied a bottle. The result is a barn dance that beckons you down the valley just after the thunderstorm quiets and the rainbow appears.” (Calgary Folk Fest)
