Dackel plays Rockin’ Americana Blues after our major musical influences. “Dackel” (German cute name for dachshund) was chosen in tribute to our song “Year of the Dog” In 2016 we played various festivals, including the Carrboro Music Festival, and Durham’s Festival for the Eno; and performed live on the “Pass The Hat” radio show on WHUP Hillsborough.
