Grab a drink, sit down, take a breath, have a listen for a moment, an hour, a night, because here they come with their earnest musical narratives of the back alleys, the open range, the hollow, the front porch, the lives behind the love, want, fear and fracture of a world that despite all adversity remains, within their songs, hopeful, thoughtful, jubilant. The band deems their sound Junkerdash – part folk, part bluegrass, part string-band blues, part punk, and most certainly wholly kickass. Bourbon and the Western Swing are a recommended pairing with Hillfolk’s Junkerdash, we’re told, which seems spot-on. Fronted by multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, Travis Ward, this trio of neo-traditionalists includes Alison Ward on musical saw, washboard, banjo, and purely gorgeous vocals, as well as Mike Waite keeping the heartbeat, rhythm and flow alive on double bass. John Doe (X, the Knitters), patron saint of the American Dream, once said, “If John Steinbeck owned a speakeasy, Hillfolk Noir would be the house band.” Amen. See you at the show, on the dance floor, in the throes of another broke-down and beautiful Saturday night.

Food & Drink
Visitors are welcome to bring in their own food and non-alcoholic beverages.

Adult beverages may only be served by appropriately licensed vendors. We know all who enjoy supporting the Garden and Garden events are also proponents of buying local efforts, so we are happy to announce the change has brought about a new level of partnerships with local vendors. These partnerships ensure there are reasonably priced beverages for purchase at each event. We look forward to seeing you in the Garden soon and hope to raise a glass with you. Please help us thank those vendors who are also supporting the Garden this year as a portion of every sale will return to the Garden.
