The Hollow Trees Hello Friend! #REVIEW & Giveaway!

 The Hollow Trees' new CD - Hello Friend! is a wonderful treat! This band blends folk, bluegrass and jugband styles to sing about topics kids will understand and enjoy. I simply love that they think about what kids can relate to and make fun songs for their enjoyment. Songs like I Can't Dance (I've Got Ant In My Pants) will cause the family to giggle because it is something parents are always saying to their children! I love the old time feel of this album, it is lighthearted fun that will make you nostalgic for days gone past.


Blending an Americana cornucopia of musical styles that includes folk, bluegrass, jug band, Western swing, country, blues, and jazz, The Hollow Trees offer a great mix of old-time chestnuts, obscure gems, and fun, new original songs.  The band, noted for tossing off clever wordplay combined with excellent musicianship, has been compared to Asleep at the Wheel, the Jim Kweskin jug band, and even The Hoosier Hotshots.
