Santa Fe Bandstand Presents

Pawn Drive and The Handsome Family

Folk, Americana




Event Description

Members of Selsun Blue  and the Rivet Gang join forces to resurrect Pawn Drive. Rooted in the world of Folk and Americana with a dusting of grit und drang.

New Mexico’s The Handsome Family is a 20-year songwriting collaboration between husband and wife, Brett (music) and Rennie Sparks (words). Their lyrics and music are very intense, highly descriptive and full of meticulously-researched narrative and exhilarating musical re-imaginings of everything from Appalachian holler, psychedelic rock, Tin Pan Alley and medieval ballad. Of course you don’t have to be a music historian to love these songs. They are full of romantic longing for nature’s mysterious beauty and the tiny wonders of everyday life.
