Over the last decade, A Hawk and A Hacksaw have been exploring the traditional music of Eastern Europe from a distinctly American folk-pop perspective.
Accordion player Jeremy Barnes was formerly the drummer in Neutral Milk Hotel, with violinist and pianist Heather Trost featuring on Beirut’s first two records. Their inspiration now comes mostly from places like Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Macedonia.
A Hawk and A Hacksaw is based on the idea of collecting music and inspiration through travel. They are not of a place, but their music evokes places along a route.
