The Howlin' Brothers "Gone" on Exclaim! TV
Published Jul 11, 2013While Nashville may be known for their thriving country scene, the Howlin' Brothers are assets to the city's notable, yet relatively unheralded, bluegrass community. From their old-timey hats and garb to their fun country tunes driven by banjo, harmonica, and upright bass, the trio lives and breathes the old-timey bluegrass spirit.
While they may not actually be related by blood, there was a definite brotherly vibe when we met up with them during their sound check at Toronto's Dakota Tavern. The three took us on a journey with "Gone," from new album Howl, a simple and enjoyable number featuring soulful lyrics and fun shouting amidst the instrumentation.
Watch the performance below and catch the Howlin' Brothers playing the Winnipeg Folk Festival on July 12-14 before setting out on a lengthy tour of the US.
