The Oh Hellos - Dear WormwoodThe Oh Hellos - Dear Wormwood

A collection of songs inspired in part by C.S. Lewis’, “The Screwtape Letters,” “Wormwood,” snakes its way through enchanted semantics; nimble fictions whose gossamer waltzes raise haunted romps beside thorny moonlit crossroads as baptism and revelry hiss and twist in whispered folk-rock ripples mounting Celtic helter-skelter inside restless bedtime fables and majestic flatland chanteys. While the nucleus of the group consists of siblings Maggie and Tyler Heath, TOH gathers orbiting supporters catapulting the album into communal jubilation. From buckskin minstrels presenting side-saddle madrigals to maypole-cajoling nymphs hovering over solo banjo, the Texan’s sophomore foray effortlessly escalates into barn-storming carnivals lit by rousing finish-line cheers for neighborhood labors. The story-telling folk-ensemble assembles Oct 24th at Madison’s Majestic Theater along with Family & Friends and Cereus Bright
