Mixing equal parts black cat bone, whiskey and graveyard dirt, Howdy! conjures a strange invocation of bluegrass, folk and southern Americana; sometimes described as acoustic jam but best described as “Outlaw Folk”. Singing songs of dust and despair, angels and devils, redemption and celebration, Howdy! composes a liturgy of sound evoking earlier times whilst weaving music familiar yet altogether new.
Howdy! is Tennessee native Dave Nanstad on vocals, acoustic guitar and harmonica, Southern California native Sean Hancock on mandolin and vocals, and Northern California native Aspen Stevenson on upright bass and vocals. Revelers at Howdy!
shows have been heard to exclaim...”they cast out devils and speak with new tongues..!”.
