Briefs: OA KAFM Hillbilly Music February 06, 2009
“Hillbillyesque” music performed by Lance Weaver and Tamlyn Weaver of Hillbilly Voodoo.
Don’t bother looking up the word “ hillbillyesque” in the dictionary. It’s not there.
But along with “country” and “bluesy,” “hillbillyesque” is the music performed by Lance Weaver and Tamlyn Weaver of Hillbilly Voodoo.
The duo from Helper, Utah, will entertain at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 7, at the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave.
Tamlyn Weaver elaborates about the band’s style on its MySpace page: “There’s a real hillbilly influence, but as songwriters, we play a variety of sounds and instruments. Thus the VooDoo part of our name.”
The two met in 1993 and have played together since. Their songs are influenced by old-time music and great songwriters, and the lyrics reflect the trials and struggles of life and the broader influence of the world in which we live.
Tickets are $15.
