This is music that moves forward by turning the clock back — haunting, primal and strangely heroic

Dark, elemental, mischievous and mournful

The Handsome Family are Brett Sparks (music) and Rennie Sparks (lyrics) who live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They consider their songs Romantic in the 19th century sense of the word: full of an awed sense of emotion in the face of nature’s mysteries.

This concert presents tracks from their new (8th) CD Honey Moon (released April, 2009) was written to celebrate their twentieth year of marriage.

Honey Moon is the much anticipated album since their Last Days of Wonder (June. 2006) was one of Mojo’s top ten American Albums for 2006 and called “an unqualified triumph” by Uncut.

Rarely, even in the fatalistic world of country music, has the precarious mystery of mortality been captured with such poetic grace as on Singing Bones.
