SANTA MONICA—Santa Monica Public Library and the Topanaga Banjo Fiddle Contest announced a performance of The Hallow Trees on December 10. The band will play upbeat, toe-tapping folk music for families at 2:00 p.m. in the Main Library’s Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium.

“Acclaimed for their high-energy, acoustic Americana music, the Los Angeles-based band The Hollow Trees blends a cornucopia of musical styles including folk, bluegrass, jug band, Western swing, country, blues and jazz. A mix of traditional favorites, obscure gems and fun original songs will have you singing along to Polly Wolly Doodle, Take Me Out to the Ball Game and more! The band, noted for tossing off clever wordplay combined with excellent musicianship, has been compared to Asleep at the Wheel, the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, and The Hoosier Hotshots” reads a Santa Monica Newsroom press release of the December event.
