You feel sad and a little guilty because maybe you didn't see "Live Lunch Break" as it aired onlineThursday. Folk-rockers Hanging Hills performed eight songs from their new album "The Great Divide" at The Telegraph in New London.
But it's not too late! We archive all "Live Lunch Break" episodes on theday.com. Here are fun things to know about the Hanging Hills performance and interview.
• The band's name derives from a piece of Connecticut folklore in which a ghostly dog haunts the hills outside of Meriden. Seeing the spirit dog three times is supposed to result in death. Singer Greg Dyson assures us the same is not true of seeing his band.
• Dyson has a deep interest in American history. "The Great Divide" is a concept album populated with stories of Civil War-era America.
• The first single of the album - "Things I Long to Be" - features intricate four-part harmonies that sound as if they come naturally. Not so, according to lead guitarist Elliot Woolworth. Learning the parts that Dyson writes is a "painstaking" process.
