Holy Ghost Tent Revival
The Greensboro septet Holy Ghost Tent Revival represents the previously uncharted corner of the universe where big band horns and acoustic Appalachia collide. It is a most curious combination, but Live Emergency, HGTR’s first release, proves that it works. Two things are obvious on Live Emergency – the band’s ability to write catchy tunes and the raw energy of an HGTR performance, where audiences are whipped to a frenzy with bombastic horns and furious strumming. One has to believe that if Glenn Miller and Earl Scruggs could get together to host a late night throw down, Holy Ghost Tent Revival would definitely be the house band.
