We are only two weeks away from pure musical bliss for a great cause! 2021 has been a difficult year for so many of us, and I can tell that personally I am really looking forward to the Holiday Hoot on so many fronts. Music heals, and I have no doubt that you will emerge from this concert with a feeling of hope that you didn’t have before, and you will be a part of an amazing audience who, along with the musicians, create an atmosphere of love, friendship and family in a climate of conflict that continues to permeate our society.

Expect some fantastic jams by the fine folks performing for you. All the sets are coming together nicely right now, and we will be featuring Ike Stubblefield’s Hammond B3 all night long to be used by keyboardist extraordinaires Matt Slocum and Kevin Thomas. Let’s just say you’ll be witnessing some musical nirvana moments that won’t happen again!

The 10th Annual Holiday Hootenanny is poised to be a musically emotional experience for all who can make it. Two musicians

very near and dear to our collective heart passed away this summer within about a month of each other, percussionist Count M’Butu and keyboardist Ike Stubblefield. Their passing was a collective blow to our music community, and the 2021 edition will celebrate their energy, both musical and personal, that so many of us felt, as well as the ever present spirits of Col. Bruce Hampton, Johnny Knapp, and Yonrico Scott.

My hope is that you come, enjoy, feel the love, and are inspired to be there for Atlanta Habitat for Humanity and to celebrate the lives of two iconic masters of their instruments and great friends to many.

The show will be broken down into 3 sets:

Set 1: Jim Lauderdale, accompanied by the ATL All-Stars featuring Rev Jeff Mosier, and featuring Jason Carter (Del McCoury Band, Travelin’ McCourys) on fiddle.

Set 2: Grant Green Jr. and Papa J lead the way in this tribute to Ike.

The Down For The Count Percussion Jam

Set 3: Capricorn Jam featuring Randall Bramblett & Tommy Talton

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

Enjoy this set from Col. Bruce Hampton at the 5th Annual Holiday Hootenanny. It would turn out being his final full performance as part of the Holiday Hootenanny and easily a top 3 set of his in my book! Zambi
