Texas-born fiddler Phoebe Hunt grew up the child of disciples of Indian yoga master Swami Satchidananda, which means Hunt’s music carries a chime of Eastern incantation to go along with its distinctly Americana instrumentation. Hunt first emerged as part of the popular Austin band The Belleville Outfit. Now, she’s embarking on a tour with her new band The Gatherers in support of a haunting new album of sweet mountain ballads—Shanti’s Shadow, which grew out of an extended visit to India to study at the knee of the great Indian classical violinist Kala Ramnath.
