XPoNential Music Festival 2009 Artist

Hoots & Hellmouth

Hoots & HellmouthSean Hoots and Andrew "Hellmouth" Gray became a partnership in early 2005 and joined forces with Rob Berliner on mandolin to form their own brand of "bleeding soul." The band takes its cues from mountain musicians like Roscoe Holcomb and Doc Watson, integrated with a dynamic gospel sound reminiscent of artists like Rev. Gary Davis. The wild intensity of their live performances, caught the attention of both audiences and critics. Regarding the group's talent and potential, the editors of Paste magazine wrote, "Hoots & Hellmouth have things going for them that most deliberate bands only dream of." They will head out in the fall on a "harvest tour" of community-supported agricultural farms.
