The ecstatic, communal sound of Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost and friends comes back to Europe.
From their home in deepest New Mexico, A Hawk and A Hacksaw present their new album "Cervantine" - the first release on their brand new label, L.M. Dupli-cation. This is the finest document of this band's roving spirit yet: the record that gloriously connects their fascination with the folk and gypsy groups of former Yugoslavia, Greece and Romania to their original base in the desert plains of the American Southwest.
It's the vibrant sound of an American band whose geographical and cultural travels have come to bear on their already distinctive music, to unique and dazzling effect. "Cervantine" is where A Hawk and A Hacksaw really take flight.
Support from Dan Haywood's New Hawks, promoting their 32 song triple vinyl/double cd/download album:
