It seems pointless to scrabble around for a succinct soundbite summation of the album What A Beautiful Thing I Have Made when the title says it all! (Folk Radio UK)

Were very excited to welcome the incredible Hackles, all the way from Astoria, Oregon (USA) to our favourite venue, The Square Tower. As soon as we heard this stunning trio, we knew we had to try and bring them to Portsmouth for you all, and here you go! This is going to sound stunning in the Tower!

The Hackles started out as a duo and impressed with their debut album, but it was the follow-up, 2019's A Dobritch Did As A Dobritch Should, that established them well beyond the shores of the USA. In the UK, The Daily Express called it gorgeous Americana ,while RnR magazine said it was magnificent.

The Hackles, now a trio, have a new album that is winning them much more media attention, and a couple of tracks are written by close friend and long-time auxiliary member Halli Anderson of the band, River Whyless, who is now a permanent band member. They made their UK debut in this format at Glasgow's Celtic Connections in 2023, winning universal praise following a sold-out headline show.
