Hares on the Mountain

Hares on the Mountain Denton, TX

playing at Dan's Silverleaf on Friday from 9:30 to 10:30

Hares on the Mountain play folk music. Rowdy, messy and loud folk music. Hares on the Mountain understands that folk music is the music of our everyday lives and it’s HOTM’s mission to return it to its roots as a music that expresses the lives of everyday folk. HOTM is a band that throws together influences from traditional American, English and Irish folk song, punk, psychedelic noise, rock and country music. We believe folk music should have balls. We are DANGER FOLK!

Hares on the Mountain began as a series of 4-track experiments recorded by George Neal (Little Grizzly, The Slow Burners) and Ryan Becker (RTB2) in Neal’s garage in Denton, TX. The project was originally a vehicle to record a series of traditional folk songs from the British Isles but soon grew to include original material that drew on a wide variety of influences.

Further changes were initiated when Ryan and George decided to move the project from the studio to the live stage. The current live configuration now consists of Ryan Becker, George Neal, Cory Coleman, Justin Collins, Petra Kelly and Tony Ferraro. This line-up has recorded a new album entitled “It Will Only Hurt Forever” which was released March 2012 and the digital only “Army” EP in December 2012. HOTM are currently recording their next release due at the end of 2013.
