Fairfield Theatre Company welcomes Girls Guns and Glory

Fairfield Theatre Company welcomes Boston’s own, Girls Guns and Glory on Tuesday, June 19, at 7:30 p.m., at StageOne, 70 Sanford Street.

For the past eight years, Boston’s rising stars Girls Guns and Glory have been making a name for themselves through relentless touring of about 200 gigs a year worldwide. With the release of four critically acclaimed records, a slew of local awards, including the Boston Music Awards first act of its genre to win Act of the Year, and international awards (Independent Artist of the Year at the French Country Music Awards) there is very little this incredible foursome have yet to accomplish.

Made up of Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion, and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo), these four men found inspiration be going back to the roots of early ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and Buddy Holly, as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

The early rock ‘n’ roll inspiration is somewhat of a full circle moment for Hayden. “This style of music was in the house I grew up in. My mom was a fan of the earlier country music and early rock ‘n’ roll, but I didn’t have real taste for it until I was about 20. I had this beat up old Oldsmobile that didn’t have a radio, only a tape deck. My mom would lend me her tapes of Johnny Cash or Hank Williams so I’d have something to listen to. I fell in love with the sound; it was everything I had been looking for.”

Fast-forward to today and GGG is using that old school sound as its primary influence that has been turning heads and peaking audiences ears in each town and city they perform in. The band’s musical evolution over the past few years, Hayden says, “has been evolving from country to where we are now. I label what we do now as American music. It’s really rooted in various American forms of music whether it’s rockabilly or hillbilly boogie or traditional country or rock ‘n’ roll. I consider us a rock ‘n’ roll band blended with classic country music, but this new album is really more of a straight up rock ‘n’ roll album.”

If you’re a fan of indie music make sure you clear your calendars because these four shows at Fairfield Theatre Company StageOne are ones you won’t want to miss.
