Brought to you by Southbound Brewing Co., gr8FLdüde & TDawg Presents with continued support from Wildman Steve Radio and Terrapin Beer Co., the 8th Annual Jerry Day ATL at Terminal West is now just over three weeks out!  Highlighted this year by the Rumpke Mountain Boys, Deep Blue Sun & The Lefty Williams Band, the lineup is really solid from top to bottom, and remember, no song is repeated throughout the day so every set alternating on two stages is unique!  Terminal West is a very comfortable venue with Stationside Restaurant serving food throughout the course of the day/evening festivities.  THANK YOU to our sponsors Southbound Brewing Co., Terrapin Beer Co., and Wildman Steve Radio for their involvement in this year’s edition!

Terminal West and TDawg Presents are excited to bring you a hot, hot show to kick off your July 4 weekend featuring The Larry Keel ExperienceDangermuffin, and The Jugtime Ragband!  THURSDAY, JULY 2 promises to be a smokin’ night of absolutely stellar acoustic music, exploratory and traditional simultaneously while taking you on a journey from 20’s ragtime jazz to progressive acoustic music that embodies elements of old-school bluegrass, new grass, and folk-rock.  Personally, I am thrilled to have long-time bluegrass buddies and shenanigan cohorts The Larry Keel Experience performing on the Terminal West stage.  This is a great room for them, and to add the skills and sounds of Dangermuffin to the night just makes this a rock solid night.  The addition of Atlanta’s own The Jugtime Ragband seals the deal for one helluva show!

Keel is regarded by many as one of the most powerful, innovative and all-out exhilarating acoustic flatpicking guitarists performing today.  I tend to agree!  LKE was part of every HarvestFest I did and was the first non-festival venue show I ever produced.  It’s a joy and a pleasure to continue working with him, his lovely wife and extraordinary bassist Jenny, and the highly esteemed banjoist Will Lee any chance I can.  LKE has been tearing it up across the country, and Larry has had the opportunity to participate in several special lineups recently.  Rest assured you will walk away mesmerized by what transpires on the stage that night.  Below is a video of an entrire long set following Dangermuffin and shot on 2/26/15 in Asheville, NC at the Asheville Music Hall courtesy of Independent Arts & Music of Asheville.

For those of you who have not been turned on Dangermuffin yet, well, you’re in for a treat.  Their Friday night showcase performance at TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny back in April was off the charts musically, a defining two-set gem.  This incredibly dynamic trio brings out a sound that captures you in their groove almost instantly.  It will be a pleasure to witness a jam with The Larry Keel Experience, as these buddies know how to throw down when together!  Below is a video of Dangermuffin from The Pour House in Charleston that you will enjoy.

The Jugtime Ragband is homegrown out of the Atlanta music scene and one of my favorite finds of the last couple of years.  Their infectious 20’s style ragtime jazz sound with a modern twist will have you moving from the get go, and I certainly wouldn’t be surprised in the end to see them on stage in some form or fashion late in the night for a jam.

Hootenanny News, Larry Keel, and more!

May 27 marked the official 17 year anniversary of the existence of TDawg Presents/TDawg’s Productions.  What a long strange trip it’s been indeed, and the may the second 17 years bring continued growth, stability, happiness, and the joy of bringing the shows that matter!  There have been many growing pains, incredible musical experiences, and the creation of friendships & relationships to last a lifetime.  Thanks for all the support for all these years, and when change happens, know that it’s a good thing!

Over the last 17 years, I have learned to keep my approach fresh.  With that in mind, TDawg Presents won’t be producing the fall edition of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny this year so more energy is available to put into the other events already on the calendar, including the 5th Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny ~ A Benefit for Atlanta Habitat for Humanity ~ scheduled for Sunday, December 20 at Terminal West and the spring Back Porch Hootenanny scheduled for April 1-2, 2016, at Cherokee Farms!  Please stay tuned for details on both as we move through the year!

“Canada’s premier neo-tradsters romp from world-beat to blues, urban-pop to old-timey, with wild-eyed invention, haunting traditionalism, and spine-rattling groove.” (Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe)

No band epitomizes the polyethnic strands of modern folk music better than The Duhks.

What a time we had at the 18th edition of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny, a bi-annual tradition (at least!) since 2006!  A big shout out to the crew – Tree Sound & Power, Tamara, Linda, Ben, Drew, Amanda, my darlin’ wife Stephanie, Starbridge owners Donna and Logan, Wildman Steve, and the volunteers who helped make this year’s spring event one for the books!  As usual, the musicians brought their A+ game to the festie, and despite the move from longtime home Cherokee Farms we had ourselves an amazing experience and THANK YOU to everyone who made it out for our first time at Starbridge!  We’ll be back at Cherokee Farms for the fall edition, #19, the weekend of September 18-19!
