A hearse is the vehicle which conveys each of us to our final resting place. The word might evoke thoughts of cars and trucks driving us to our graves or the horse cart leading up to the pyre.
To the hearse's padding and curtains and carving go the job of easing the passage, for the spectators in equal if not greater measure even so than for the participant.
Hearse is the voices of J McLaughlin and Grayson Walker, guitar and accordion respectively, and an attempt to make our passage more comfortable. They have been told that despite their obvious focus on the participants of their performances, spectators also find solace in the evening Hearse.
"Cavalcade of the Scars shows that, at least in the case of Victoria, this kind of artistic incest can lead to some amazingly beautiful musical moments... highlights include Hearse’s “Bonnie Parker,” a dark, accordion-fueled torch song..." - Vue Weekly
