Dangermuffin: Friday Night Showcase (April 10) at TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny

16 Mar

TDawg Presents is excited to welcome the dynamic trio Dangermuffin to the 18th edition of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny!  If you’ve not had a chance to familiarize yourself with them quite yet, this is your chance, and there promises to be a few special sit-ins that might happen along the way through two-set, 3 hour performance!  From Folly Beach, SC just outside of Charleston, their melodic sound represents three musicians bringing you something unique.  Dangermuffin has recently completed a run of shows with bluegrass buddies The Larry Keel Experience and is gearing up for an extremely busy festival season this year!  They  perform Friday night only, and you must have a two-night pass to see them. So plan on coming out Friday, get your campsite up, and hear that set which is just for YOU!

The two videos – “Cicada” and “Little Douglas” – are from a performance at The Pour House in Charleston.

3 Sep

Wow y’all!  We sure have rounded that corner quickly, and the 17th installment of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny is just about here!  I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend and that your team won! 😉

Now that we’re into September and just over two weeks out, you can clear your head for a moment and realize that you not only WANT to go to Hootenanny, but you also NEED to go!  The amazing energy that is created at Cherokee Farms – the camaraderie of your friends, camping neighbors and musicians – the spontaneity of the jams – the amazing flow of this tightly wound small festie that releases a giant multi-layered musical explosion – the knowledge that you WILL hear something you’ve not heard before and it will make an impact on your already impeccable musical tastes.  These are all great qualities of what a Hootenanny is at the core, a joyful healing and re-energizing experience for the mind, body and soul.  TICKETS & LODGING INFO
