The Woman That Ended the World
Willamette Week
Open House 2006 has left the beaten track and fallen in with some very bad company in a hill-country juke joint in the deepest reaches of North Mississippi. With a bottle of moonshine and a three string guitar we've gotten low down and dirty to some hillbilly, gut-bucket trance blues. This is real, raw, roots blues without all those boring guitar solos. Hill-country punk blues is a Clapton-free zone and bands like Hillstomp and the Agnostic Gospel Mountain Choir will help explode any preconceptions about what folk music is… or what it ain't. The Low Down Hoedown series is a postcard from this mad musical outpost.
