Name: The Howlin' Brothers

Featured track: "Gone" 

Genre: Bluegrass

City of origin: Hermitage, South Dakota

In one sentence: "They play their instruments every waking moment and are truly possessed by music." - Brendan Benson

Why we chose them: These brothers bring authentic — yet indie-influenced — bluegrass sounds to a rock- and pop-heavy SXSW Festival. Catch the brothers before the release of their highly anticipated album, Trouble, which was produced by The Raconteurs' Brendan Benson. 

SXSW official showcase: Friday, March 14 at Maggie Mae's
