Seven Year Old Series Emerges From Hiatus

WOLFEBORO, NEW HAMPSHIRE - Wolfeboro Folk is returning with a scheduled concert on Saturday, August 29, 2009, with the blues, swing, and rockabilly band, The Nouveaux Honkies. The concert will be held at the Wolfeboro Inn and offer an optional pre-concert dinner and full bar service.

Founded in 2003, the award-winning Wolfeboro Folk Concert Series has been on hiatus since last Fall. Since its inception, the series has introduced several acts including the Lost Bayou Ramblers and Carolina Chocolate Drops, presented acts like Odetta, Richie Havens, Richard Thompson, and Natalie MacMaster. Gold and Platinum album artist Bruce Cockburn recorded his 2008 Wolfeboro Folk concert at Moody Mountain Farm and released it worldwide as his most recent album, Slice O Life.

"The Nouveaux Honkies were in New England and we just couldn't pass by a chance to put them on the stage." says Wolfeboro Folk organizer, Ben Anderson, "The series has been on a break for a variety of factors, but this band had us pull the series out of hiatus and get things back up and running. They are that fantastic."

Originating from a small commercial fishing town, the Honkies started playing in a tiny café on Saturday nights. Their combination of blues, swing and early country soon swallowed the local crowd and this quartet exploded out of the gate recording two albums and leaving a trail of old tonk-style shows from Florida to the Northwest. The Nouveaux Honkies have a matchless sound and perform a blistering show with fluid guitar work, reverent vocals and a haunting violin.

From intimate shows to major festivals, the Honkies consistently leave a trail of honkified public with their tight unique sound and blistering infectious show. The band can't be duplicated and brings a sound reminiscent of a time when rock was on its first date with roll. It's an authentic approach to historic music that doesn't replicate but is highly respectful, obviously thankful, and undeniably original.

"The Honkies have been the discovery of the year for audiences across the country." said Anderson, "They've just hit the national festival scene and are making incredible waves."
