Vassar Clements Tribute to kick off Holiday Hoot (Dec 20!)

Vassar Clements was a dear friend to many, and I know I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with him professionally and developed a close personal friendship with the man in the final chapter of his amazing life. Vassar first performed with Col. Bruce Hampton at HarvestFest in 1999, with Col. Bruce introducing him to the stage as the King of Kings. What a fitting title.

On December 20, the 8th Annual Holiday Hootenanny will pay tribute to this amazing American music legend who transcended genres and generations to create a mystique all his own, performing with everyone from Bill Monroe to Jerry Garcia to Stephan Grapelli and all points in between. We will be kicking off the show with a short set of fiddle jams by one of the finer trifecta of players – Jason Carter (Del McCoury Band), Lyndsay Pruett (John Stickley Trio), John Mailander (Bruce Hornsby) – and joined by Jeff Mosier on banjo, Mark Henry on the upright bass, Matthew Williams on guitar, and Nick DiSebastian on mandolin. What a great start to the evening! The adjusted schedule is below:

7:00 – 7:15 ~ Vassar Clements Tribute

7:20 – 8:05 ~ Heather Gillis

8:30 – 9:30 ~ Jim Lauderdale

Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny News!!

15 Nov

Well folks, the 3rd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny keeps getting sweeter by the day, both on the concert side and the silent auction side.  It’s been fun to stir the pot and get some exciting items to bid on (see pictures below for one item!), and TDawg Presents is excited to announce some additions to the lineup!

Two amazing songwriters from opposite ends of the sprectrum – original Capricorn Records recording artist Tommy Talton (Cowboy) and multi-instrumentalist Jason Kenney – are joining this already on-fire lineup, with just a couple of more to be added soon.  Both bring a passion to their unique sound, full of purity and soul.

Talton is walking music history, as a founding member of Capricorn Records original Cowboy (also featuring Chuck Leavell), and through most of the 70s as a studio musician recording with artists such as Gregg Allman, The Allman Brothers Band, Bonnie Bramlett, Martin Mull, Corky Lang (West, Bruce and Lang, Mountain, Dickey Betts, Clarence Carter, country legend Kitty Wells, Alex and Livingston Taylor, Arthur Conley of Sweet Soul Music fame, and more.  He toured extensively throughout the U.S. with Cowboy and with the Gregg Allman tour, from Carnegie Hall (as special guests) to Fillmore West in San Francisco and most cities in between. Talton was also the guitarist on Gregg Allman’s “Laid Back” album.

Kenney has been performing and recording professionally for only eight years now, but it seems like a generation’s worth of time based on how he plays, sings, and writes.  His most recent effort is a group called the Kenney Blackmon String Band with legendary fiddler David Blackmon, and their album was produced by famed Widespread Panic producer John Keane.

Stay tuned for a couple of more lineup announcements, and SPREAD THE GOOD WORD!  There’s not another show with as much heart and positive energy as the 3rd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny – A Benefit for Atlanta Habitat for Humanity!  HOOT HOOT!!

Below is nice clip from this past March in NYC at BB King’s Blues Club for the Hittin’ the Note After-party, post Allman Brothers Band concert, featuring the Tommy Talton Band…enjoy!!!
