Owl & Mack: Boris Hauf und Martin Siewert

Owl & Mack is a project by Boris Hauf that really works as a solo act but can also be extended with guest musicians to make a larger band. On the occasion of the Up to Nature festival, Hauf meets the guitar player Martin Siewert, who have been fellow musician travellers for more than twenty years. Together they will bring the typical Owl & Mack sound to the meadow, a sound that comes into being when the nocturnal predator Owl, with its marked depth perception for night time hunting, and the Mack brand – known particularly for robust lorries used for long hauls and in the construction industry – collide: Screamin’ Jay Hawkins meets Nick Cave meets Cowboy Junkies.
