25 Oct

Hootenanny2016

Y’all read that right – we’re having a celebration HOOT at Cherokee Farms! 20 years of music brought to you by TDawg Presents (aka TDawg’s Productions and Eye Dawg Productions) is certainly reason enough to host The Harvest Family Hoot, so mark your calendars for April 6-7 to celebrate HarvestFest, TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny, and all points in between that have included that wonderful TDawg energy, from venues to community events.

More details to come the in the next couple of months, so STAY TUNED IN! Meanwhile we have the 7th Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny to soothe your soul until the spring, and the concert, along with a silent & live auction, benefit a great cause in Atlanta Habitat for Humanity!

Frank Hamilton School Community Appearances & Concerts!

15 Feb

fhs_shelleyManaging Director Shelley Satonin-Hershkovits has published a new blog posting that places emphasis on the nurturing process of learning provided by the Frank Hamilton School – it really is a wonderful sight to behold witnessing people of varying skill levels coming together for a harmonious jam where one can just play what is natural in the moment. It is this sort of environment that can be so welcoming to an individual (take me, for instance!) who has never played before or hasn’t played in 20 years and encouraging towards continuing beyond each session and Second Half to enjoy his/her instrument(s) of choice.

Come Play With Us and see what it’s all about. You’ll be glad you did! The new term begins Tuesday, March 7 & Wednesday, March 8.
