Hackensaw Boys will perform at Willie's Locally Known
On the heels of the release of their brand new album Charismo, Hackensaw Boys will perform in Lexington on May 14 at Willie's Locally Known.
With a recent appearance on NPR's Weekend Edition and glowing reviews in No Depression, Saving Country Music, and more, Hackensaw Boys are "back with a vengeance" (No Depression) with Charismo, their first studio record in nearly a decade. In their 17th year as a band, Hackensaw Boys still deliver the spirited, rowdy live show that's come to be expected, performing both old favorites and brand new tunes from Charismo (April 15, Free Dirt Records).
Produced by Larry Campbell—who has lent his talents to Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, and countless others—Charismo is the Hackensaw Boys record you’ve been waiting to hear. The 11-track album feels like the band's zenith release, gathering their diverse life experiences and myriad of roots influences, and crystallizing them into a magnum opus on the Hackensaw way of being. Traditional Appalachian and Delta music lay the groundwork, but it’s injected with a heavy dose of the contemporary, good-times-roll kind of spit and vinegar the band has become known for over the years.
