The Purple Fiddle presents Hoots & Hellmouth

October 3, 2015 @ 8:30 pm - 11:55 pm


Embodying a feisty, independent spirit churning out new music for old souls. Their shows are like traveling tent revivals; their audiences are like congregations!

“Hoots & Hellmouth also look to the ’70s. Philadelphia’s Sean Hoots and Andrew “Hellmouth” Gray play acoustic guitars, backed by a mandolinist and upright bassist, and favor country-rock harmonies and hippie romanticism in the mode of Crosby, Stills & Nash or the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. The band’s debut album, “Hoots & Hellmouth,” is marked by rambunctious energy, a welcome sense of humor, a hint of old-time string bands and the potential to grow into something more original.” – The Washnigton Post

“Who needs a drum kit? The Philadelphia rock/alt-country/gospel outfit Hoots and Hellmouth generally eschew any percussion that can’t be easily transported to the front porch, choosing washboards, tambourines, spoons, and footstomps over the usual snare, bass, and high hat, yet their sound is no less raucous or irresistibly danceable for the substitution.” – Pop Matters

“A raucously viral augmented trio kicking up hi-energy cuts burrowing beneath brain and skin.” – AcousticMusic.com

The rhythms in The Holy Open Secret are triple-catchy with brash, sassy, in-your-face vocals jumping up, beer stein in hand, belting out to exhort all and sundry to join in and and wail.
