Hymn for Her in Concert
Friday, June 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Eastport Arts Center is psyched to present our favorite backwoods blues-folk-punk-psychedelia act, Hymn for Her, on June 21 at 7 pm. The high adrenaline duo have been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past few years, with their unique sound which has been described as “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish.” The semi-nomadic couple describe Maine as their “heart home,” and enjoy visiting their cabin in Deer Isle whenever they can. The couple is currently touring to present their latest release, Pop-N-Downers. Mingling textures and tones far removed from the “hayride to hellsy” twang-rock blast of their 2016 release, Drive Til U Die, the songs on Pop-N-Downers simultaneously exude sophistication and a charming, childlike whimsy.
Impressively, the duo create their “ripsaw sounds” (Los Angeles Times’ Randy Lewis) with only a few instruments. Wayne (with the devilish voice), mainly playing the kick-drum, high-hat, acoustic guitar and harp, serves as the group’s rhythmic driving force. Lucy (of the fallen-angel voice) delivers a gritty squall on her “Lowebow”— a custom-made cigar-box guitar, and adds texture with her banjo/bang-o (drummed-on banjo).
