There’s no better way to kick off the festival than with the Clem Hawkins Revival Band! A true family venture, the band features siblings Tom Venne (guitar) and Julie Hogan-Venne (bass), resurrecting a sound started by their father (stage name: Clem Hawkins
) in the late 1940s. Tom and Julie have reclaimed their dad’s sound and made it their own; the result is beautiful sibling harmonies and memory-stirring classic country tunes. Not to be missed, Tom and Julie are joined by their Beartracks bandmate Harry Ralph on fiddle, special guest lead guitarist, and Bob Newton on drums. Come out and plan to dance!
