SAT Oct. 5th 6:30pm VOMA Bluegrass Presents:
Haint Blue w/ Justin Giuffre & the Pilgrimage
Baltimore's Haint Blue returns to VOMA!

"There's folk music, and then there's Haint Blue. The local sextet's bold take on the Americana genre lands somewhere in the eye of the storm—between calm and chaos—a lilting chamber orchestra meets a holy roller gospel choir.... In the three years since the band's debut EP, their chemistry has coalesced into a crescendo of emotion and talent. You feel their rich harmonies, of voice and instrument, in your bones." - Baltimore Magazine

"The seven-strong group artfully amalgamates poppy beats with Americana roots and instruments, producing a sound akin to Shovels & Rope or Avett Brothers, but still apart in its context and tonal shifts. Haint Blue has layers of pain and living in its lyrics, wrapped carefully in cheery beats and twangy harmonics." -Jonathan Goodwin, Deli Magazine
