Hackensaw Boys’ Ward Harrison Plays Solo at the Camel

wardharrisonwords by Rob Bullington

If you’re a music fan in Richmond, chances are you’ve heard Ward Harrison’s guitar playing, singing and songwriting. Ward has been the driving force behind many of Richmond’s best bands: Starting with turn-of-the-millennium power pop group Tank Top and most recently as a member of new old-time road warriors The Hackensaw Boys. Along the way he’s fronted classic country purveyors The Ruinaires, held down the low end in the riotous Van Halen experience called Van Heusen, propelled local Americana songwriter Heath Haynes to Nashville success as a member of The Crying Shames and driven the El-Camino-of-punk-by-way-of-Catalonia known as Los Ramones (according to many, if you haven’t witnessed a Spanish Ramones cover band, then you haven’t really lived).

Ward takes a break from working on his first solo album of original folk and country tunes to appear with fellow former Hackensaw Rob Bullington’s rock band Flight of Salt as part of the “2014 Summer Salt Spectacular” Tuesday, July 1 at the Camel. Free show. Music starts at 8 p.m.
