Opening the evening is the amazing Rev. Jeff Mosier!  Expect the unexpected on this one, y’all. You don’t want to miss this show.  The Duhks haven’t been through Atlanta in several years, and we have them in the intimate and friendly confines of The Red Light Cafe!

Rev solo

TDawg Presents is excited to bring the iconic Rev. Jeff Mosier into the mix on Thursday May 1 at the Red Light Cafe!  He will be doing a special opening set before The Duhks beginning shortly after 8pm.  You never know what might happen later!  This is going to be a special night, so get your tickets NOW to ensure your spot at the show!

duhks-at-red-light-cafe-512014-banner

Mosier has been shifting focus to outside interests and his desire to work as a solo artist.  You might even get a story out of him as part of the set!  The former DJ for WRFG 89.3 in ATL (late ’80’s, he used to pick banjo over the phone with callers picking on the other end!) is a very entertaining and inspiring musician.  His many associations over the years include frontman for Blueground Undergrass and The Mosier Brothers Band, a local legendary bluegrass band Good Medicine (performed a gospel set with Vassar Clements at HarvestFest 2000!), and he is credited with teaching the fellas of Phish the art of bluegrass.  All of these lineups included his brother and guitar extraordinaire Johnny Mosier.

Below is a fun clip from a show in 2010 from The Melting Point in Athens, GA featuring The Mosier Brothers w/ special guests Curtis Jones, David Blackmon & Randy Judy.  Enjoy!

 

Hope to see y’all at the Red Light Cafe!

 

Thanks for a GREAT Hoot! The Duhks on May 1!

Saturday, April 5, late morning from the hilltop!

The consensus speaks loud and clear that the 16th edition of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny was completely transcendent on so many levels.  The musical energy seemed to flow seamlessly throughout the grounds, and EVERYONE in attendance had their groove on from start to finish.  Every performance was a highlight in one way or another, and Big Daddy Love especially has raised the bar for the Friday night showcase set.  They rocked it for 3 1/2 hours with special guests throughout to our strongest Friday night crowd yet.  The weather cleared and we knew we were in for a special weekend, and we ended up having our largest crowd since spring of 2012!  Please mark your calendars for FRI/SAT SEPT 19-20 for the 17th edition of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny!!!

THANKS especially to EVERYONE directly involved in the Hootenanny process: my darlin’ wife Stephanie, Tamara and the box office posse, Linda & Ben, Drew and the kitchen crew, Paul Diaz & Tree Sound Studios, the amazing folks from Music On Main Street, Wildman Steve & Spike, and of course Smokey & Debbie, without whom we wouldn’t even be able to use the beautiful property known as Cherokee Farms and whose generosity permeates throughout the land!  Last and absolutely not least, THANKS to the musicians who give it their all and YOU, the audience, who responds so resoundingly well to those said musicians, creating a constant whirlwind of musical magic & mayhem!

We are fortunate to have some amazing artists involved in the Hootenanny movement.  The fun continues as we incorporate the likes of Seven Handle Circus, Moontower, Copious Jones, Strung Like A Horse, Big Daddy Love, and High Strung String Band back into the mix of future TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenannies while keeping it fresh each and every time.  The basic principle behind the Hootenanny is to always KNOW that you’ll leave Cherokee Farms on that Sunday following the Hoot feeling refreshed and recharged in your world and anxiously awaiting the next one!  Please spread the good word and bring your friends the next Hootenanny on September 19-20 at Cherokee Farms!

Meanwhile the next TDawg Presents show on the calendar is Thursday May 1 at the Red Light Cafe for An Evening w/ The Duhks.  Special guest TBA soon!  Showtime 8pm, doors 7pm.
