Like to be happy, like to dance, enjoy newgrass music, love old time traditional music with a modern spin?
Check out the Hickory Horned Devils
The Hickory Horned Devils bring their own blend of modern old-timey traditional country-folk-bluegrass-Irish and original music to the rolling hills of Hillsborough County, NH. Inspired by bands like "Old Crow Medicine Show, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Dirk Powell, Bruce Molsky, Crooked Still, Norman Blake, Chance McCoy and the like, our music is played with traditional instruments like the fiddle, acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin and upright bass as well as some unique instruments like the 3-stringed viola (Kontra) and the banjo-ukulele. We love to play and sing the sounds of traditional southern Appalachian music with a modern twist of an Americana band. We play our own unique style of music, which often includes giving popular contemporary songs a traditional acoustic sound. Band members include; Britt Lundgren, who plays a mean fiddle, Will Platt who tears it up on the mandolin, acoustic guitar, and Kontra, and also sings lead and harmony vocals. Phil Clarner who sings lead and harmony vocals, picks acoustic guitar, banjo and mandolin, Ray Ciemny who plays clawhammer banjo, banjo ukulele, harmonica, and sings, and Larry Houghton who plucks upright bass, sings a few songs, and sings back up and harmony vocals.
The Horned Devils play private parties, barn dances, restaurants, bars, weddings, festivals, etc. around Southern NH and beyond.
The Hickory Horned Devils are an old time string band that like to mix it up with bluegrass, folk, Irish, cool originals, and other Americana style music. We are available for partys, bars, restaurants, weddings, square dances, contra dances, you name it and we'll do it.
