The Acorn

The Acorn is not a band. The word “band” doesn’t do them justice. The Acorn is a collective of incredibly talented musicians.

Their music is full to the brim with melodic harmonies as well as percussive and flowing rhythms. Their music accomplishes something impressive… it both soothes and energizes. It has an organic feel, as though it is pushing its way up through the moist dark earth at the height of spring hoping to join the crocuses while they ring in the season of renewal.

I hope that doesn’t sound like a pretentious pile of crap. I wrote those words while listening to the song Crooked Legs off of their most recent album Glory Hope Mountain. There is definitely something about The Acorn, something fresh and alive in their sound and in their presence.

If you didn’t have the chance to see them in their element at The Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, Quebec this past weekend be sure to hunt them down in your hometown. I’m sure they’ll pop up sooner or later… it is spring after all!
