Passim Streams: Hawthorn (live from Club Passim)
May 21 @ 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDTFree
Hawthorn, created by Heather Scott and Taylor Holland, “digs into its folk roots while also reminding us that tradition is about tending to the flame, not the ashes” (NPR). The Boston-based group is quickly gaining national recognition for its powerful vocals surrounded in old-time banjo, warm guitar, and dreamy electric lines: “When they harmonize, the edges of their voices bleed together like watercolors on paper” (WBUR). Hawthorn was nominated for the 2019 Boston Music Awards and the New England Music Awards. Notable appearances include The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Bust Out Boston, House of Blues Boston for the Boston Music Awards, and the International Herbal Symposium. Hawthorn’s newest LP Maggie Willow, hailed as “a ghostly brilliant record” (Sound of Boston) and named to both WBUR and Sound of Boston’s top albums of 2019, is available everywhere.
