Frank Hamilton School News, Concerts & Appearances

21 Sep

fhs_falltermBig news folksThe Frank Hamilton School is officially recognized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and we are thrilled about what this will mean for both our development as a music school that includes the WHOLE community and the opportunities we can create as well as participate in.  On the heels of a very successful term-ending concert by the students and seeing such a level of satisfaction by all in the room at that time, obtaining 501(c)(3) status is a wonderful continuance of all that is right about what The Frank Hamilton School stands for.  Thanks to everyone for the support we have received to this point as we near one full year of operations, and we hope that you can join us for classes beginning Sept 27 or one of our upcoming events (see below) over the next month!  Please visit http://frankhamiltonschool.org for event listings and complete information on registration!

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

On Sunday afternoon, September 25 from 3-5 PM (typo on the poster), the Frank Hamilton School is excited to be a part of little5artsalivefirst-year series of performances encouraging all forms of performing arts for Little Five Arts Alive!  Supported by the Horizon Theatre, L5AA has become a wonderful part of what is Little Five Points – an eclectic and arts oriented community that embraces street performing.  We will be providing some instruments if you’d like to join in and realize that you, too, can play!  We’ll be situated in the heart of Little Five Points on the corner of Euclid Ave. and Moreland in Findley Plaza.  Come on down and enjoy!

On Sunday, October 9, FHS will again perform in Findley Plaza as a part of the Little Five Arts Alive program from 2:30-4:30 PM, and we look forward to future opportunities!

This could be YOU this weekend!

The forecast for Friday and Saturday is a beautiful one!  We can’t wait for the music to start up on Friday night!  We hope you can come on Friday, as we have Wildman Steve’s band, Blackberry Possum, kicking off the weekend high energy jamgrass and some special guests throughout.  These fellas are highly skilled and will blow your mind.  They’ll do two long sets so get ready!  Bring your hammocks, too, as we’ll have some edge domes set up for your enjoyment, not to mention the jungle gym effect 😉  This is really going to be a fun weekend with friends and family, and the music is going to be off the chains!

The primary goal of a TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny has never been about bringing in the headliner that draws the big crowd – it’s about the extremely high quality of musicians and those in attendance joining forces for a incredible experience that leaves you happily decompressed from the rigors of your daily lives.  You always leave with a new band in your head and memories of unique combinations of the participating musicians.

Below is the schedule for the weekend.

Frank Hamilton School Concert Series Off & Running!

22 Feb

FHS_Hair of the Dog

We had a great week last week at the Frank Hamilton School!  Check out this great article that James Kelly wrote in the Atlanta Creative Loafing edition out now!  Many thanks for the push as we move forward in our journey to become an integral part of the musical DNA of the greater Atlanta area.

Please consider coming out Tuesday evening to Epworth United Methodist Church (across from Candler Park) for the start of our next term (6 sessions for $100) – you’ll be glad you did!  We will be featuring Guitar I & II, Banjo, Mandolin, Ukulele, Fiddle & Vocals…there’s something for everyone!  It really doesn’t matter what level you are, and if you’re shy about playing with others then this is your ticket.  Please visit http://frankhamiltonschool.org for more information, and we hope to see you on Tuesday, February 23!

The opening concert of the Frank Hamilton Concert Series on Thursday night with Jeff IMG_0461Mosier starting the festivities followed by The Georgia Crackers was an amazing experience that was fitting for a kick-off celebration, and we had a great crowd for the festivities!  Below are some videos that highlight how wonderful the evening really was.  The first video features Jeff Mosier performing the classic John Hartford tune made famous by Glenn Campbell, “Gentle On My Mind”.  The next song is performed by The Georgia Crackers, and the last couple of videos feature Jeff joining on stage with the spoons.  Great stuff!  Hope you enjoy!

We hope to see y’all out on March 3 for our next concert at the Red Light Cafe, featuring Atlanta’s own Hair of the Dog!  Great Cajun music with a twist of pedal steel thrown in for good measure.  You’re sure to leave a fan!  Advance tickets are available for purchase, $10 Adv/$12 door.  Please let your friends know, show starts at 8pm!

Schedule for the 5th Annual Holiday Hootenanny!

My wife and I attended the Dangermuffin concert last Saturday night at Eddie’s Attic, witnessing one of the freshest, finest performance in quite a while!  Hard to believe it’s only three fellas up on stage.  Playing in front of a packed house, they created such an amazing groove that had folks standing and boogeyin’ where you’re usually sitting!  I personally can’t wait until their Friday Night Hootenanny Showcase at Starbridge on April 10!  It’s going to be a very special set, mark my words.
