Taking Bristol New Music deep into the city, A Hawk and A Hacksaw perform at The Sportsman’s public house.
Based on the idea of collecting music and inspiration through travel, A Hawk and A Hacksaw began in 2000 in the small town of Saumur, France as a vehicle for Neutral Milk Hotel drummer Jeremy Barnes. The main impetus of the project was to focus on the grey areas in borders of music and geography, with violinist Heather Trost joining in 2004 to form a duo. Evoking the journey, rather than the destination, distinctly rural songs speak of the woods and roads where there are no sidewalks or street lamps to light the way.
This special Bristol New Music performance draws deeply from their recent album, Forest Bathing.
