Warren G. Hardings

The Warren G. Hardings are at the forefront of a fresh wave of Cascadian newgrass. There’s an abandon to their music that unites the carefree folk traditions of a time long gone with the red-hot roots music movement that’s sweeping the nation. Though the music they create has obvious nods to a rural American past, the songwriting is as fast-paced as Seattle city traffic, and owes more to the fierce politics of the Northwest than any kind of old-timey nostalgia. The Warren G. Hardings are a high-energy stringband belonging to a generation of musicians that continues to evolve the legacy of American roots music into the rich and diverse art form it is today.
