At the core of A Hawk and A Hacksaw is drummer and accordionist Jeremy Barnes, (formerly of Neutral Milk Hotel and Bablicon) and violinist Heather Trost. Blending Eastern European folk traditions with their own New Mexico roots, their music flies between “glorious madness and melody, played not only with skill, but with real passion” (AllMusic). Performing tracks from their latest album, the duo invite special guests and “sheer unfettered adrenalin” (BBC) to the stage.

With special guest support from prolific UK folk outlier Richard Youngs.

Please note this event takes place at Sportsmans (Bristol County Sports Club), 40 Colston St, BS1 5AE
