Hawktail is an acoustic quartet consisting of Brittany Haas on fiddle, Dominick Leslie on mandolin, Jordan Tice on guitar and vocals and Paul Kowert on bass. In addition to this ensemble, Hawktail’s members are and have been contributors to a wide range of projects including Punch Brothers, Dave Rawlings Machine, Sam Reider and the Human Hands, Crooked Still, The Deadly Gentlemen, and NPR’s Live from Here with Chris Thile. Together, they have created a unique sound, always giving lively performances that combine original material with perennial songs and tunes from the annals of bluegrass and old-time music.
“While they are well versed in the old-time traditions, their music is fresh, lively, and consequential. In other words they are not imitators or replicators.”
