On Feb. 13, the talented musicians from The Hawthorne Roots along with Wesley and the Revolving will take the stage at Lone Peak Brewery to deliver soulful performances of their rock/blues, and folk/bluegrass genres, respectively.
The Hawthorne Roots’ original songs combine the passion of soul music with revved-up rock and blues beats. Their fresh sound has gained recognition in Montana, earning them Bozeman Magazine’s Peoples’ Choice Awards for “Best New Local Band” and “Best Folk Performance.”
The style is defined by silvery vocals, tightly woven harmonies, and catchy melodies. The Hawthorne Roots consists of sisters Madeline and Emma Kelly, Montana transplants from the East Coast, who are backed by bassist Haley Ford, guitarist Lucas Mace, and drummer Michael Dejaynes.
Cinched up tight and tucked neatly behind the strings, Wesley and the Revolving cut heavily across the grain of the folk and bluegrass genres. Led by creator Wes Urbaniak’s song writing, WatR’s music is far from commonplace. According to Urbaniak, “It’s a hug and a grrrrr with a little bit of fur.”
The Feb. 13 Lone Peak Brewery show starts at 9 p.m. Call (406) 995-3939 for details.
