Hilary Hawke
"Yellow Rose"

Playing Sunday at: Brooklyn Rod & Gun (59 Kent Ave., Williamsburg)
Info: Tickets (FREE) | Directions

Hilary Hawke learned to play old-time banjo music in the clawhammer style growing up in the Adirondack mountains of upstate New York. These days, even though she's operating out of Brooklyn, Hawke still draws on her origins--imagery of crows, horses, mountains and lost love—to craft lyrics with all the rootsy ingredients required of a country and bluegrass songstress. Sunday night’s hootenanny will combine Hawke’s picking with the traditional Appalachian fiddlings of Melody Berger. For a double dose of bluegrass, stop by Superfine Restaurant for a Bluegrass Brunch from 12 to 3 P.M. Hawke will perform alongside The Flipsides, a five-piece swing band that plays harmonies in fervent mountaintop fashion.
