Hillfolk Noir (Boise, ID)
Venue: Granada Theater & White House Coffee
Filtered through a half-century of folk, country and rock ‘n’ roll, and fed by family history and an affinity for acoustic mountain music, medicine show culture and Depression-era string-band blues, Hillfolk Noir’s peculiar roots gumbo is, like the carnival midway, at once inviting and foreboding. Look no further than 2008’s “Diggin’ Songs” — a concept album of toe-tapping songs about grave matters — for proof.
“If John Steinbeck had a Speakeasy, Hillfolk Noir would be the house band.”
~ John Doe, of X and The Knitters
