HILARY HAWKE & THE FLIPSIDES

Hilary Hawke & the Flipsides is no straight up country cover band. With a line-up of great musicians, they could play a traditional country and bluegrass show, and they are definitely rooted in this style. But the band’s unique, devil-may-care songwriting leaves a big impression. Songs loaded with the imagery of crow’s, horses, mountains and lost love is enhanced by the groups full-on harmonies, background singing and unique musicianship.  Hawke is the leader of the band, and main songwriter on banjo and guitar.  Although all members contribute to creating the arrangements and adding original songs.
