Hailing from the hedge and loam of Seattle's undergrowth, Dogwood aims to weave historical and wax hysterical in the old-new traditions of mountain men, shantymen, and her fellow men as she tromps acro'st both ancient myth and accidental malady.
Nathaniel Johnstone is perpetually trying to figure out what he sounds like. At times he's blues, metal, punk, folk, celtic, with a whole bunch of other things thrown in for good measure. He has collaborated with a number of other ensembles: The Ghosts Project, Jill Tracy’s Malcontent Orchestra, Ego Likeness, Jody Ellen, Android Lust, The Last Dance, The Hellblinki Sextet, Abney Park, and others.
By their forces combined Dogwood & Johnstone make music meant to confound, delight, and infuriate in equal measure. Joining them at Hexenfest is gothic tribal dancer extraordinaire, Tempest.
