Upcoming Events at HPL





The Hollands 6:00 pm, Monday, August 10
The Hollands! are seasoned concert performers, engaging audiences with their intimate merrymaking. They are a full-time internationally touring family based in the US via Australia with a knack for engaging audiences and rousing a sing-a long. They are 21st century nomadic travelers and frolic in the organic folk revival scene.
Jana Holland, originally from Michigan, has traveled between 3 continents, with an interest in songs of old and desire for the laymen to experience community through song. Her willingness to give any instrument "a go" has transposed into offerings on the Mandolin, Banjo and Guitar. Jana's deep minor tones and angelic voice extend solace to all who listen. She sets the mood and embraces your mind with her poetic yet ground level lyrics.

Delicate and natural harmonies are added by daughter and gifted vocalist, Graciana Holland. This little darling is stunning and immediately evokes a desire to hear more.

Craig, a native of Australia, began his music career playing punk, including a 7 year stint in Ballydowse, a Chicago-based Celtic Punk band recorded by famed indie producer, Steve Albini. Craig offers the element of unique sound that pulls the music of The Hollands! in a different direction than traditional folk. When Craig is playing the Taylor acoustic, the rhythms are almost Celtic by nature.

Named after the infamous Australia bush Poet, Banjo Patterson, the youngest Holland, "Banjo" is a force to be reckoned with on the Cajon' and other percussion instruments.

By the end of their performance, audiences will feel like they are part of the band. This is the experience and magic that happens when The Hollands! come to town.
