Hard Pressed

Hard Pressed

Old-time String Band / Americana-Folk / Bluegrass

 

Hard Pressed is a marriage of two lives – of a fiddle and banjo – of mandolin and guitar – of rich, honest and pure harmonies, both in life and in song. Their material, both original and traditional, is transcended by the delivery of their rich, heartfelt vocals. Raised on opposite sides of the country, this musical union merged in the mountains of Colorado to create a new blend of old-time music. Andrea Lecos and Cory Obert will be joined by Josh “Turtle” Hallenback on mandolin and guitar.

 

Cory recorded and toured with the Colorado-based band Sweet Sunny South for 11yrs. Andrea had the opportunity to record and perform with singer-songwriter Sand Sheff, The Reeltime Travelers & Martha Scanlan. She also performed with songwriter Benny Galloway, Robin Davis (Broke Mountain Bluegrass Band, Wayword Sons), Anders Beck (Greensky Bluegrass, Broke Mountain) & Glenn Keefe (Leftover Salmon, Lefthand Stringband).
