Dawson Hollow Headlines ACM@UCO’s High Noon Showcase on Sept. 5

In August, The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma (ACM@UCO) launched the High Noon Showcase, its free, public concert series, at times featuring ACM affiliated artists, as well as great musicians we want to highlight.

High Noon continues Sept. 5 with Dawson Hollow, an indie-folk rock quintet based in the Ozark Mountains. The band performs 12:15 p.m. in the Songwriting Room (first floor) at ACM@UCO, 25 S. Oklahoma Ave., in Bricktown. All High Noon shows are free and open to the public.

Dawson Hollow released it full-length debut, “Boy of My Youth,” in January. It was crowdfunded by a highly successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $96,000, which, in part, allowed the act to work with Grammy Award-winning producer and mixer Ryan Hewitt (The Avett Brothers, The Lumineers, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Nashville-based producer Ryan Poole (Roger Jaeger, Benji Kuriakose).

Multitalented multi-instrumentalists Ben, Aaron, Rachel, Kyle and John Link form Dawson Hollow. Together, they mix vocals, keyboards, banjo, guitar, drums, mandolin, cello and more to create their one-of-a-kind sound. If you enjoy Dawes, Old Crow Medicine Show or Nickel Creek, you’ll love this band. Learn more at dawsonhollow.com.
