One Song: North Idaho Zombie Rag

Hillfolk Noir

No, this blog isn’t about Idaho, but neither is the band behind today’s tune—Hillfolk Noir.

While the trio hails from Boise, they mash up a dizzying array of musical styles. “Hillfolk Noir’s peculiar take on traditional acoustic mountain music is filtered through a half-century of folk, country and rock ‘n’ roll,” their website boasts, “and fed by an affinity for medicine show culture and Depression-era string-band blues.”

All that, plus, they sing about zombies.

Hope this twangy tune kicks off your Halloweek right!

    Really Cool! They play awesome! I’ve just started watchin’ this blog recently, btw, I would looove to travel Appalachia pickin’ my guitar for people! I do the Carter scratch just like ol’ Mama Maybelle did it. I think the people there would love it!
    Someday soon I might do just that!
