Nostalgic instrumental rock with nothing but percussion
Rhythmwood Drive is a married duo from central Indiana playing acoustic instrumental covers that feature marimba, hammered dulcimer, and percussion. Doug and Sarah Haag have been playing together for over a decade but decided to bring it to the public after Sarah acquired a marimba in 2016. Now they take to the streets, festivals, concerts, and living rooms to bring the unique sounds of melodic percussion to those seeking musical inspiration with a dash of nostalgia. Playing covers from pop, rock, and movies from the 70s to present, this duo will bring back familiar memories with a new perspective!
Doug and Sarah Haag, from Fortville Indiana, studied percussion in college. Neither initially pursued a career in the music field but recently went through a musical rebirth when Sarah started playing marimba again, 12 years after leaving it at college. Just one year later they added hammered dulcimer to their line up and now offer a range of cover tunes, modern classical works, movie themes, and even some hymns. Doug is a master on cajon and percussion and Sarah is a 2018 Hit Like A Girl Contest Winner and a top 5 finalist in the 2018 National Hammer Dulcimer Championship. Playing at venues like the Indianapolis Artsgarden, the Rhythm! Discovery Center, and various art walks and festivals, Rhythmwood Drive is out to surprise and inspire audiences with rich unique sounds of tuned wood, strings, and acoustic percussion!
