Autumn Equinox Hedgehog Invasion
The Hedgehogs are an acoustic combo, playing songs of the British Invasion. These are the songs we've loved since we were kids—Beatles, Kinks, Honeycombs—with all of the honeyed harmonies, clever lyrics, unbeatable backbeat, and electric energy of early rock, and none of the headaches.
Guitarist Dan Cuetara and bassist Chuck Vath have long musical careers in Boston bands from ska to jazz to Puritan choral singing. But in 2016 they joined forces to travel back to the songs that started their hearts thumping to the British beat. The duo tapped singer Ellen "El Camino" Camloh for her uncanny harmonizing and harmonica, and rounded out the combo with percussion from Sarah Goodman and back up vocals from Katha Washburn. All five hedgehogs roll out from their Boston-area burrows to play farmers markets, porchfests, libraries and other friendly gatherings.
