“…like tributaries winding upriver, they separate, tracing parallel arcs before merging again at the top of the next verse. Neither voice takes the lead; instead, they travel in tandem, companions on a shared journey.”

About

Working from the belief that tradition is made to evolve, the women of Hawthorn chart a creative course through Appalachian and Celtic roots to the present-day. Heather Scott and Taylor Holland craft songs with “a weight that sits with you long after their audible presence fades” (Red Line Roots). “When they harmonize, the edges of their voices bleed together like watercolors on paper” (WBUR). 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. Hawthorn’s newest LP, Maggie Willow, is now streaming everywhere.
