The Hummingbirds present 13 Days

The husband-and-wife roots duo celebrate with an album release party at Hideaway Cafe this Saturday

The Hummingbirds aren’t actually from Tampa Bay, but the Detroit native husband-and-wife roots duo played here an awful lot before re-locating to the area last year and are currently shopping for a permanent home to call their own while promoting a new album, 13 Days, its title track an amusing back-and-forth duet about a rather short relationship and all the reasons it went right (and wrong). Rachel Wood’s husky tuneful drawl balances S.G.’s deeper twanging intones, their instrumentals (built on vintage electric guitars, drums and banjo) a mix of rambling Southern-driving roots rock (“Horses and Rattlesnakes,” “Red Truck”), Appalachia-hued Americana (“Fast Love,” “Borrow Me”), classic country with alternative charm (“Richer with Nothing,” “Leave This Town”) and even dusty tumbleweeds-blown folk-roots with gospel hues (“Listen to the River”).

The Hummingbirds present 13 Days at a release party that features support from a few other local twangy staples — Rebekah Pulley and Will Quinlan.

The Hummingbirds' Album Release Party takes place this Sat., Aug. 29; doors open at 6 p.m., with the show to kick off at 8 p.m., at Hideaway Café & Recording Studio, St. Petersburg, Admission is $12.
