Live Music at The Jailhouse
We could not be more excited to have The Hydes as our first ever live music performance at The Jailhouse! Joanna (fiddle, vocals) and Iain (guitar, mandolin, vocals) are a brother-sister duo hailing from Denver, CO, melding bluegrass with Celtic inspired folk music.
A bit more about The Hydes:
"From gigs in Nashville to Ireland, sold-out shows at home in Colorado and the Western USA, and most recently performances throughout Iceland, The Hydes continue to expand their collective, exploratory musical scope. Joanna (fiddle, vocals) and Iain (guitar, mandolin, vocals) grew up in a musical family, traveling the USA to share their music at festivals, house concerts, workshops, and various concert venues from their primary school days onward. Brimming with curiosity and a sense of adventure for an array of styles, The Hydes have forged a path of musical experience that includes classical, Irish, Cape Breton, Texas swing, bluegrass, swing, blues, and classic American folk idioms."
