The 10th Annual Holiday Hootenanny is poised to be a musically emotional experience for all who can make it.

Three musician very near and dear to our collective heart passed away this summer within about a month of each other, percussionist Count M’Butu, keyboardist Ike Stubblefield, and Delta Moon front man/slide guitar extraordinaire Tom Gray. Their passing was a collective blow to our music community, and the 2021 edition will celebrate their energy, both musical and personal, that so many of us felt, as well as the ever present spirits of Col. Bruce Hampton, Johnny Knapp, and Yonrico Scott.

My hope is that you come, enjoy, feel the love, and are inspired to be there for Atlanta Habitat for Humanity and to celebrate the lives of two iconic masters of their instruments and great friends to many.


The show will be broken down into 3 sets:

Set 1: Jim Lauderdale, accompanied by the ATL All-Stars and featuring the Rev. Jeff Mosier on banjo and Jason Carter (Del McCoury Band, Travelin’ McCourys) on fiddle.

Set 2: Ike Stubblefield Tribute / The Down For The Count Percussion Jam

Set 3: Capricorn Jam featuring Randall Bramblett & Tommy Talton

Below that is a video from 2012 led by Papa Mali and an all-star cast that included Oteil Burbridge, Jimmy Hall, Jeff Sipe, Ike Stubblefield, Count M’Butu, Yonrico Scott, and Gaurav Malhotra.
