The Pine Hill Haints
Formed in Alabama in 1998, and perfected in a Southern cemetery, The Pine Hill Haints perform music they consider to be "dead" in the modern world, hence their self-proclaimed "Ghost Music."
The band seamlessly weave musical elements from the past while also staying blatantly original. Taking inspiration from roots music and Southern tales of the supernatural, the Pine Hill Haints play songs that touch upon honky tonk, rockabilly, folk, and bluegrass. The band utilizes a number of traditional American folk instruments such as a fiddle, harmonica, tenor banjo, mandolin, saw, and accordion in their live shows and recordings. Occasionally, members of the Haints will swap instruments or abandon his or her primary instrument altogether, instead performing on one of the aforementioned instruments for a song or two. The band has several former members, and depending on how many happen to be present at a performance, surprise guest performers may accompany the Haints onstage. Such impromptu reunion performances are not completely unexpected at their shows.
