This is not a piece about Haun's Mill in Missouri, this is a new musical group. New to me at least, but welcome.
And like so many other talented artists, they hail from Austin Texas.
A captivating group in the current roots movement, Haun's Mill combines folk, spaghetti western, and classic country into a sound distinctly their own. Their live performances are coupled with period movie projections, resulting in a powerful presentation of sights and sounds. Once described as haunted saloon music, Haun's Mill has found a home in Austin's quirky environment since moving there in late 2010. Since their relocation, the five piece band holds residency at the swanky 1920's themed East Side Showroom and has played local clubs and festivals including Swan Dive, Continental Club, Art Outside, Pecan Street Festival, Parish, Club DeVille and Momo's.So Haun's Mill are a band who you could just as easily expect to see playing in the camp on Hell on Wheels, or in a current day festival. A definite welcome addition to the alt-country circle.
A strong sense of Americana and even American Gothic. Just love their current take on that old timey music. Look out for them they could be taking the country by storm any time now. Talent will out.
