Hi y'all,


We hope you're all doing well wherever you are!  We're about to pick up the pace a little and hone in on some new tunes-- specifically during the Rattle Trap portion of our live set...ya know, when the cajon, Zach's electric bass, & the Telecaster make their appearance!  Hope you can come check out a (few) upcoming shows we're excited about:


*This Friday (like, tomorrow 3/29), we'll be back in Dahlonega at the Crimson Moon


*Next week we'll be back in SC for Columbia at El Burrito


*Then Sullivan's Island at Home Team BBQ for a pre-Charleston Bluegrass Festival show, which we'll be performing on Saturday, 4/ 6. 


*THEN, in early May (5/3), we'll be back to Athens to play the Melting Point for the 19th Hole Concert Series!



Viva the state of Georgia!  Keep checkin the Facebook page and PHB website for new shows and other updates.





Georgia Theatre hosts a pretty awesome radio show. There's a fine hour of music hosted by Roadkill-Ghost Choir, then some deep dark and dirty PHB...dirt...nudity discussions, jail time, What is A Packway Handle, etc.  You can check it out [it's bookmarked on the Soundcloud page link so you can jump right to it (around the around 1hr mark) Here's the link:


We recently did some recording with Jim White and the Skiperdees from Athens, GA.  Jim is producing their new album.  We're also putting together a new song with Jim.  More details tba!  It was a pleasure to work with these great folks!  Check out their links, we promise it's worth your time!





Here are a couple projects some of us are involved in that y'all may be interested in checking out.  C'mon & "Like" 'em on Facebook!





Marie Davon (Venice is Sinking) and Andrew Heaton (Packway Handle Band) join forces to create sincere bittersweet lullabies.  They are about to release their next album and are streaming select tracks here.  They'll also be appearing with Sans Abri next Wednesday, April 3 at El Burrito in Columbia, SC! @powerkompany



Sans Abri


Josh Erwin and Michael Paynter's (Packway Handle Band) new project that doesn't necessarily fit Packway's M.O-- the style is not necessarily adhered to the strict expectations associated with bluegrass, but it's still connected to Americana alt-roots music.  Consisting of acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, live-looped percussion, and vocal harmonies.  Their next show is Sturdaday, March 30 in Athens at The World Famous supporting The High Strung String Band for their new album, Rise and Shine [tix here]!

See y'all soon!

"This is how I like my bluegrass served up – dark and passionate, with a side of blood."  Sarah Hagerman,

"The Packway Handle Band mixes dark themes and old-time religion with a uniquely modern folk aesthetic that pins down just what American music is all about."  Zachary Lupetin, Splice Today

"One thing is obvious to all: The Packway Handle Band is not your father's bluegrass band."  Dave Higgs, Bluegrass Now
