The Horsenecks

alt

Hard hitting transcontinental Old Time and early Bluegrass stringband music.

With roots in Portland, OR and Liverpool England, The Horsenecks play a varied and dynamic mix of American roots music that they bring to life with the high-energy performance of a group of people who love the music they play. Top-shelf musicianship and a love of the lost art of Old Time music are swiftly making them a well-loved and highly respected staple in the traditional music scenes in the US and the UK. Playing as a duo or a four-piece, multi-instrumentalists Gabrielle Macrae and Barry Southern swap effortlessly between fiddle, banjo, and guitar, and round the sound out with the booming rhythm section of Liverpool’s finest, Chris Marshall and Alan Wright.

Having formed a strong musical bond right off the bat they have since been delighting traditional music fans in the UK and America with recent performances at the Portland Old Time Gathering, The Olympia Old Time Festival, The Boise Hermit Music Festival, and many other venues across the northwest United States and in England.

Press:

“The Horsenecks, with their self-titled debut album have shown the West Coast Traditional Music scene that they are a force to be reckoned with. All of the contributors on the album are standout musicians in their own right, and Macrae and Southern are no exception. When I saw their performance at the 2015 Portland Old Time Gathering I was blown away by their versatility, subtlety, and drive. You should expect to be nothing less that blown away by this outstanding album.” ~ Daniel Gerrard, Trad Nation

“I went down to the Muddy Rudder Pub here in Portland, Oregon, last night and listened to The Horsenecks. Gabrielle Macrae is one of the three Macrae Sisters and she was playing with Barry Southern and Alan Wright from Liverpool’s Loose Moose String Band. Was it ever a good show! They played a lot of old time, a little early country, and a few bluegrass and British songs for good measure. Gabrielle played fiddle most of the night with a little banjo thrown in. Barry switched effortlessly between clawhammer banjo, Scrugg’s style banjo, old time fiddle, and guitar. Alan provided rock solid guitar backup and great vocals on the British songs. Gabrielle’s fiddling has been steadily getting stronger over the last few years. I’m convinced the old time fiddle players on FHO are going to be talking a lot about Gabrielle in the years to come.” ~ Scott Killops, Portland Old Time Guru
