Hackin' round with Hackensaw Boys

I spent a zany hour in the studio yesterday with some unrepentant Southern souls who call themselves Hackensaw Boys.

The band was in the area to play a Sunday night gig at Cafe Nine in New Haven. They play their traditional bluegrass punk country with a fierce, unfettered joy.

It's wonderful to hear a group of young people find the fire and rhythm in an ancient sound.

The results can be heard Wednesday morning on Caterwaul.
