The Wild Hymns

Monday, August 5 · view days & times
Venue: Yuengling Lagerplatz


A beautiful synthesis of neo-folk, pop and americana with elements of jazz, psychedelia and mellow rock and roll, The Wild Hymns are the original songs of singer/songwriter Megan Woodland Hewitt (née Donley) and her band with her husband, guitarist Jeff Hewitt (including bassist/vocalist Cindy David, keyboardist Rob Shuckle and various drummers). There is a tender sweetness to their sound as well as depth, mystery and an other-worldly quality; a blending of understated but wide-ranging, earnest and soulful female vocals with flowing and effortless guitar that evokes sounds from the folk-rock of the 60s as well as world, jazz and blues. The music and lyrics of The Wild Hymns are greatly influenced by human relationship, emotion, nature and mysticism; they are reclaiming the word "hymn" as a song of praise to the natural world, the raw and wild human spirit and universal, cosmic love.
