Equipped with a guitar, washboard, a single snare drum and a washtub bass, The Pine Hill Haints play music that any fan of rockabilly, blues, punk, or roots music will surely dig. Their stripped down brand of music sparks an honestly to the genre that I haven’t heard since maybe The Gibson Bros. The Haints lo-fi recordings about heartache, whiskey and supernatural affairs fit quite nicely on K Records, but to be honest the first time I heard “Ghost Dance” I thought someone had just dusted off an old Sun Records 78. One thing is for sure, with all of the influences and genres these Alabamans mix-up into a set anyone who sets foot into Total Fest will be in for a treat.
The Pine Hills Haints graced the Total Fest stage back in 2006 and the Total crew couldn’t be more excited to see these raucous rawkers back for our tenth anniversary. We are so inspired we may have to whip up a batch of bathtub gin to celebrate.
