Hoth Brothers

Jun 10, 2019

HOTH BROTHERS

 When two local solo artists found themselves cutting tree tops in northern New Mexico they had more on their minds than just getting down from the trees in one piece.  Boris McCutcheon & Bard Edrington V had so much music in common that the idea of sharing gigs came naturally, as did sharing the songs that emerged from the experience of working while aloft.  The duo name High on the Hog was quickly simplified to the HOTH Brothers & before long an ensemble formed to record their debut album "Workin' and Dreamin'." The ensemble stopped by Studio A on May 28, 2019 to play & explicate as only these two can.  Recorded by Chip Borton with John Strader & Roman Garcia the HOTH Brothers are: Bard Edrington V: vocals, banjoBoris McCutcheon: vocals, guitar, harmonica, mandolinSarah Farrell: vocals, upright bassGreg Williams: drums, toys Follow the HOTH Brothers on Facebook as well as Boris &  Bard's individual projects on these websites:www.bardedringtonv.comwww.borismccutcheon.com
