Tickets: $13 ADV / $18 @ Door / Reserved Tables Availablehttps://www.freshtix.com/events/strung-like-a-horse

Where: The Vista Room, 2836 LaVista Rd, Atlanta, GA 30033 / PH: 404.321.5000

Time: Doors 7:30 PM / Showtime 8:30 PM

Y’all this is going to be quite a musical experience on Friday night at the Vista Room! High energy from the beautiful stage there is a given, so be sure you’re a part! Great food & drink menus offer up temptations for bites and libations, too. Strung Like A Horse has been on break for a little while and this is their first show back, so rest assured the fellas from Strung Like a Horse are gonna bring it! Expect a surprise sit-in or two 😉

Atlanta’s long-time king of the Cajun & Zydeco scene Hair of the Dog will really set the night on right, bringing a great blend of sounds to create an addictive Cajun/rock ball of joy. While the patriarch of the band, Atlanta folk legend Whit Connah, passed away almost two years ago, the band carries on in amazing fashion with his energy in tow and the next generation of family jumping on the stage. Always an amazing time! What a great combination of bands!

Here’s a video of Strung Like A Horse from May of this year at The Purple Fiddle in West Virginia. Enjoy!

 

TDawg Presents July Shows + Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny Update

19 Jun

Well folks, as I’ve completed my 50th revolution around the sun and begun my 51st, there’s nothing like some excellent musical opportunities to continue the celebration well into the summer. The month of July provides you with two opportunities to attend some stellar TDawg Presents shows (indoors in the AC!) – July 20 featuring Strung Like A Horse w/ special guest Hair of the Dog AND July 29 featuring the 11th Annual Jerry Day ATL! Please continue reading for more information about each of these events!

I know it’s only the 3rd week in June, but plans are well underway for the 8th Annual Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny to happen on Thursday, December 20, and once again it will benefit Atlanta Habitat for Humanity. TDawg Presents has donated over $11,000  the last five years. I am excited to announce that TDawg Presents will be taking the Holiday Hoot back to its original home, the Variety PlayhouseThis edition, as all the previous have been, will be extra special – as it will feature a wonderful dedication to the late great fiddler, Vassar Clements. The first time he performed with Col. Bruce Hampton was HarvestFest in 1999 with Bruce’s band at the time, Planet Zambie, that featured Barry Richman on guitar and Dr. Dan on the keyboards. Bruce crowned him the “King of Kings”. The version of “Time is Free” that came out of that set was absolutely over the top! Vassar & I became good friends, and I feel fortunate that we were able to enjoy his music for a few more years before his passing in 2005. Expect a stellar group of musicians to be involved the celebration of one of the greatest masters of music in the modern era! More to come in the next couple of months.

~ THE HARVEST FAMILY HOOT IS A RAIN OR SHINE EVENT

================================================

Hoot_NightAs we get closer to THE weekend of The Harvest Family Hoot, I’ve been pondering what this event represents beyond a celebration of 20 years & going strong. We are gathering for what promises to be an absolutely amazing collaboration of musicians Friday night, all day Saturday and into the late night, yet I have come to the realization that this event is as much a segue way to another 20 years of reinvention and ways to bring music to the community, be it through the Frank Hamilton School or creating fresh community events that impact my immediate surroundings in the greater Atlanta area. I’m not sure what the future brings as far as camping events are concerned; I am certain that TDawg Presents will continue to provide a reason for folks with different ideals and beliefs – religious, political & otherwise – to enjoy the music together, as music is a strong common bond. It’s important to be reminded in such a polarizing world in which we live that there is more opportunity to unite than divide. I intend to do my part with the former rather than the latter.

I hope that you can join us this weekend – I know that you’ll leave with renewed energy for life and purpose. HOOOOOOOOTENANNY!

=========================================

Well folks, we are gearing up for what promises to be an incredible weekend of reunions with friends, family & musicians both on the stage and off! The Harvest Family Hoot is truly a celebration of the journey that has transpired over the course of the last 20 years in my life and many of the musicians involved. This journey includes not only the evolution of HarvestFest to a nationally known 3-day roots and Americana extravaganza known as Blue Ridge HarvestFest in partnership with High Sierra Music and more than 20 smaller festivals that included 19 editions of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny, two Keel Family Functions and a Cherokee Farms FiddleFest, but also all the concerts that have happened in venues around the metro Atlanta area and various points of the Southeast that are too numerous to recall right now. We’ve all been blessed with such an amazing array of music legends, future legends, and all-around phenomenal musicians over the years! The music never stops my friends.

HOOOOOOTENANNY!!!
