Hellwater plays original and traditional American roots music. From tear-in-your-beer honky tonk travesties, half-assed bluegrass to tub-thumping jug band & country blues tunes, the HillBilly hounds of Hellwater seek to bring joy and happiness to an often dark and joyless word.

Biography

From hearlfelt tear-in-your-beer honky tonk travesties, half-assed bluegrass and tub-thumping jug band & country blues tunes, the HillBilly hounds of Hellwater seek to bring joy and happiness to an often dark and joyless word. ~ JL
