Mother Hips Family Hipnic

(PR) (((folkYEAH!))) & The Mother Hips will be hosting the 1st Annual Mother Hips Family Hipnic over 4th of July weekend in Big Sur, CA. The event will take place at the historic Henry Miller Library over two days - July 3rd and 4th, 2009. The other artists set to peform include Little Wings, Moondoggies, Everest, Citay, Emily Jane White, Chuck Prophet, Parsons Redheads, Red Cortez, Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers, Sparrow's Gate, and These United States.

The event was curated by both The Mother Hips, who will headline both nights, and (((folkYEAH!))) Presents. "Big Sur has always been an inspirational place and a hideout for artists of all kinds. It's exciting to congregate there and make music," says Tim Bluhm, Mother Hips front-man, singer-songwriter, and guitarist.

The Mother Hips plan to unveil new songs at the festival. In between tour dates, the band has been putting finishing touches on a new album, due for Fall 2009 release. A recent show preview by The New Yorker described the veteran Bay Area quartet as "a romping strain of countrified psychedelic power pop laced with traces of Merle Haggard, Barry Gibb, and the Eagles."
