    Hobbyhorse Goes Back To Its Pagan Roots With 'Fire and Snow'
    Posted by: "sounni_ali" sounni_ali

    San Francisco Bay area, folk/rock duo Hobbyhorse returns to its mystical pagan roots with the release of their latest single "Fire and Snow," about Moll Dyer, a woman who was burned as a witch in Leonardtown, Maryland back in the late 1600's.

    According to legend, Moll Dyer was a mysterious woman who lived alone and had knowledge of herbal healing. During a harsh winter, the townspeople became suspicious of her and accused her of being a witch. They came to her door one night and set her house on fire. Moll fled to the nearby woods. She collapsed on a rock, balanced one hand upon it, and raised the other while calling a curse down upon the town. A young boy found her the next day. On the rock was burned an impression of her hand and knee. In 1975 a historian located the site where her house may have been. Not far away was a large 875 pound boulder with what looked like the marks of Moll's hand and knee. Download the track on Hobbyhorse's myspace

    "Our song brings to life Moll's last moments when she is trapped between the extreme elements of fire and snow," explained Hobbyhorse singer Annie. "There is no hope for her to survive, but she expresses her power as she curses the town that treated her so wrongly. Her spirit is strong and lives in this legend, in ghostly sightings and beyond."

    Hobbyhorse's music is in the spirit of experimentation and the expansion of the imagination. They take psychedelic folk/rock into the present day with their poetic songwriting and adventurous arrangements. The duo has returned from a year in the studio recording their latest full-length release "Break in the Clouds," which has been growing on the broadcast airwaves with stations in Canada, Australia and across the US adding it to their playlist.

    "Traditional in one sense, quietly experimental in others, Hobbyhorse's Break in the Clouds embodies the magic that is woven in the art of folk music - and by folk music I mean music that is authentic, spirited manifest from the love of creation rather than 'music industry' profit motive."
