We’re just over a week out from the final Back Porch Hootenanny, and it is going to be an amazing time had by all, from the musicians to staff & volunteers to the patrons who have supported the Hootenannies all these years and HarvestFest before that!  We all WANT to be there.  The music will be continuous, first from the stage and carrying over to the late night acoustic jams!  We will celebrate all that has been, that has brought an amazing group of individuals together to form an extra special potpourri of family and friends for so many years already and for the unforeseeable future.  The message of bringing together community through music via TDawg Presents events doesn’t end; there is simply a change of venue in the Frank Hamilton School that will continue the trend of outstanding performances and on a more regular basis!  Meanwhile, HOOOOOOOOOOTENANNY y’all!!!

Frank Hamilton School Concert Series Kicks Off 2/18!

15 Feb

Frank Hamilton Folk School Concert Series Kickoff Party Featuring The Georgia Crackers &Rev. Jeff MosierFeb 18th at 8_30Red Light Café

We are very excited about the beginning of something special, and that is the concert side of the Frank Hamilton School!  Thursday, February 18, is just the start of a process that will continue to bring quality roots music of all sorts to the Atlanta area.  A portion of the proceeds from each show will go directly into operation costs for FHS, so please come out and support!  A special side note here ~ there will be a couple of TDawg specials on the menu that night.  Both my deeelicious red beans’n’rice and my extremely popular spinach queso dip will be available for order that night.  Please let me know what you think!

hoot_OTSAt this point in time, shows are booked for one Thursday each month through the end of the year, and they are all stellar performances by some of our favorite local musicians as well as some highly touted regional and even national performers!  You can click here to see the full schedule through December!  Stay tuned for a few additional dates to be added the second half of the year.

It is going to be really fun watching the Frank Hamilton School integrate into the metro Atlanta area through concerts and community gatherings.  As we move into spring look for announcements about participating in some prominent spring-time arts festivals and traditional hootenannies!  While TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny gracefully retires to pasture (with a bang!), the word “Hootenanny” will be put to the true definition, providing a great reason to gather, jam, and enjoy each other’s company!

I found this great video the other day from an attic concert I produced in December 2010 at my good friends MollyO’s house.  It was a packed attic for a memorable night of music by Rev. Jeff Mosier & Joe Craven.  I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I did!  Cheers, y’all, and we at the Frank Hamilton School hope you can make it out!
