The four musicians who comprise the new acoustic Americana quartet Hawktail all bring lengthy pedigees to this new efforts. Three of its members — fiddler Brittany Haas, bassist Paul Kowert and guitarist Jordan Tice made up the trio Haas Kowert Tice, which released You Got This in 2014. Kowert performs with the Punch Brothers, and both Haas and Kowert perform with David Rawlings, while Haas has also released her own solo work. Tice has also released solo albums and performed as a sideman to such progressive bluegrass stars as Tony Trischka.
But before Haas Kowert Tice could follow up You Got This, they added mandolinist Dominick Leslie, a long-time friend, to the permanent lineup, which meant a name change was required. In the interest of not being unwieldy perhaps, they picked Hawktail. This past spring, they released their debut in that configuration, titled Unless, produced by Chris Eldridge of the Punch Brothers.
Hawktail will be making their area debut at Peninsula’s G.A.R. Hall. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show.
