The Horse Flies Come to Arden Tonight

The barely describable Horse Flies come to Arden's Gild Hall tonight. Having first seen them nearly twenty years ago, I had the pleasure of seeing them several times at the Philly Folk Fest in 2006.
Here's how I described them at the time:
The Horse Flies take traditional folk motifs, deconstruct them, and reassemble the pieces into propulsive grooves that bring to mind techno and trance. Think bluegrass meets Phillip Glass.
You can go to the Arden Concert Gild's website for more information.
Warning: The Horse Flies have been known to induce restless leg syndrome.

Sally Ann is one of their best songs. Natalie Merchant did a pretty faithful rendition a few years back in which she brought members of the band on board to perform it with her.

Good stuff.
