Hard hitting and heartfelt old time and early bluegrass stringband music.

With roots in Portland, Oregon and Liverpool, England The Horsenecks play a 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.

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 powerful 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
