This is not hyperbole: four of the best acoustic musicians in America have joined together to form Hawktail (fiddler Brittany Haas, bassist Paul Kowert, guitarist Jordan Tice, and mandolinist Dominick Leslie). We hesitate to call them a bluegrass, or even newgrass, band because their virtuosity can’t be bound by one genre. This is something very special because not only are these four great collaborators and improvisors, they are all virtuosic soloists and tune writers. Prepare to have your mind blown.
