As Hawk and a Hacksaw
kicked into their first number at the YMCA Theater last Friday night, I thought, “So this is what the kids are
listening to?” Sitting crossed-legged on the main floor of the theater,
campfire style, indie nation (with a few creaky older types in portable chairs
at the perimeters) listened intently as violinist Heather Trost and
percussionist/accordionist Jeremy Barnes spun through a repertoire of vintage,
odd-metered instrumental Balkan dance music.
