Hard to Port January 26 HardToPortBand.com
Hard To Port was formed in 2012, expanding over the next few years from the original trio into a core five-piece band, with regular guest members. We play a range of music we call “Celtic Fusion” – everything from traditional Irish/Scottish reels, jigs, tunes, pub songs, and ballads, through to folk-inspired singer-songwriter material in the vein of Joan Baez, James Taylor, and Neil Young, with Old Time mixed in between. Add in some country, western, and hard rock influences, and you can understand why we lean heavily on the “Fusion”.
Our band members play a wide-variety of instruments, with most of us on vocals too. Fiddles, whistles, and guitar (Jenn Weidley), more guitars - both electric and acoustic, mandolins, and banjo (Ron Smykay and Steve Hinksman), bass (Christina Hinksman), and bodhran and other percussion (Chuck Spano) are all found on stage with us. Come and spend some time with us, and we’ll take you on a musical journey, from the green fields of Ireland to the Blue Ridge mountains to demon-haunted woods, driving across the Australian Outback, heading out west to Carson City, or racing through the painted canyons of California.
