The Hollow Trees
The Hollow Trees play “Folk Music for Families.” It’s high energy acoustic Americana played with passion, skill, and humor. They combine the musical styles of bluegrass, country, folk, blues and jazz with their funny original sing along songs and some favorite traditional folk songs too.
The Hollow Trees were formed in 2004 by singer and guitar player Gregory Hollow Tree with upright bass player Laura Hollow Tree. After the release of their first CD and many shows they expanded their lineup to include singer and jug player Traci Hollow Tree and a revolving cast of other musicians on instruments such as drums, mandolin, fiddle, accordion, and banjo.
Over the years they’ve released 4 CDs and performed many wonderful shows, including the Stagecoach Festival, Fan Fest in Nashville, McCabe’s Guitar Shop, The Long Beach Folk Revival Festival, and The Topanga Banjo and Fiddle Contest.
Their 4th CD “Hello Friend” was released in 2016 and features such fun singalongs as “What Do You Want On Your Taco?” “I Can’t Dance (I’ve Got Ants in My Pants)” and “It Ain’t No Fault of Mine.”
Warren Truitt from the blog Kids’ Music That Rocks says “With a reverent but playful nod to the classic folk sound of the late ‘40s to the early ‘60s, The Hollow Trees use a combination of old folk tunes, sea shanties, and originals to make modern day classics. Check it out. Have a hootenanny!”
