“The Hawk Owls masterfully weave an acoustic bouquet of traditional mountain instruments, crafty melodic melodies, and jangly upbeat harmonies.”  – The NJ Herald

 

The Hawkowls
The Hawk Owls formed in Sussex County, NJ in 2011 after years of playing in various other bands together.  Their song list includes a variety of original and traditional Bluegrass with a healthy dose of hard hitting “grassified” classics.  Their vocal harmonies demand your attention and their energetic acoustic sound is sure to keep you moving.
