It’s National Hammock Day: Get Jazzed about Hammock Music!

Summer is in full swing. It’s time to slow down and to relax. During the Dog Days of summer (and all of the other summer days, too), there is no better place to slow down and relax, than on a hammock.

Hammock Day is appropriately celebrated right in the middle of the Dog Days of summer (July 3 though August 11th.

Hammock Day exists to enjoy summer as it should be enjoyed. People celebrate Hammock Day by spending as much time relaxing on it as possible. Getting out of your hammock to get a snack, or your favorite summer beverage is okay. But, it is not a day for work. Cutting the lawn is forbidden on this day.

I was looking for songs about hammocks and I came across music by a group called “Hammock”.

Hammock is the duo of guitarists Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson. Nine years since their formation in Nashville, TN, the band has emerged as a leading light in modern music, with a unique sound that effortlessly melds elements of ambient, electronic, neoclassical, and post-rock.
