June 2012 - Hackensaw Boys

The Hackensaw Boys are a bluegrass string band based in the US state of Virginia. Since their formation in 1999, the band has become best known as a secular gospel collective, and they recently played a rousing set at the Parterre right here in Basel. Anna and Maria talked to band founder David Sickmen about traditionals, playing in a band with friends and getting a Swiss audience to dance.
