The women of Hawthorn craft songs with “a weight that sits with you long after their audible presence fades” (Red Line Roots). Working from the belief that tradition is made to evolve, Heather and Taylor chart a creative course through Appalachian and Celtic roots to the present-day. With a powerful vocal blend surrounded in old-time banjo, seascape guitar, and dreamy electric lines, Hawthorn is quickly claiming a place in the music of New England and beyond. Their second album, Maggie Willow, lands in February 2019.
Named after the enormous Pacific Sea Lion, Lobo Marino's brand of experimental folk draws from a rich palette of international and folk influences.
Built primarily on harmonium, bass drum, banjo and various unique instruments and voices, Lobo Marino continues to evolve as the musical response to the continuous travels and ongoing spiritual journey of its members, Laney Sullivan and Jameson Price.
