Concert preview: Warren Jackson Hearne and the Merrie Murdre of Gloomadeers at Hailey’s in Denton (May 15)
The band has mastered the art of creating devilishly addictive death folk music.
I absolutely love Warren Jackson Hearne and the Merrie Murdre of Gloomadeers. They have mastered the art of creating devilishly addictive death folk music and will be headlining at Hailey's on Friday night. They fit right in with the likes of Chad Parks, or more locally, The Heartstring Stranglers with a thumping rhythm, and slightly dark sound. Their live shows are always a blast, and this Friday should be no exception.
If you have not heard them before (where have you been?) just try to imagine what Tim Burton would have sounded like if he had created a band, instead of movies, just subtract the claymation and replace it with the musical genius of Paul Slavens and the poetic mastermind of Michael Constantine McConnell. But I think it is the deep and resonating vocals of Warren Jackson Hearne that attracts me the most to this band. The trance like state I am in while listening to this guy sing is not a very common occurrence, which makes him truly something to behold. That, and I am ultra jealous of his facial hair (also something to behold!)
