COUNTRY: Bluegrass, FOLK: Traditional Folk
"Forever True", the first full-length CD by Dead Men''s Hollow, mixes secular and sacred American traditionals with a generous twist of witty originals. The music is flavored in equal measure by old-time, bluegrass, southern gospel, and country blues - led by three-part female harmonies coupled to fiddle, flat-top guitar, and upright bass. The resulting sound complements the national interest in traditional acoustic American music most demonstrably proven by phenomenal sales of the "O Brother ..." soundtrack.
Hailing from greater metropolitan Washington, D.C., Dead Men''s Hollow is Mike Clayberg (guitar, vocals), Marcy Cochran (fiddle, vocals), Caryn Fox (vocals), Belinda Hardesty (vocals), Amy Nazarov (vocals), and Bob Peirce (upright bass, vocals). Their musical backgrounds range from punk rock to off-Broadway to choral singing to contra dance accompaniment. The members of Dead Men''s Hollow find common ground in the grand canon of acoustic American song.
About our name:
In the aftermath of the Civil War, saloons, pawn shops and houses of ill repute dominated the area of Arlington, Virginia that is now known as Rosslyn. It came to be known as "Dead Men''s Hollow". In order to pass through safely, law-abiding citizens had to travel in well-armed groups.
The band was founded in Arlington. Need we say more?
