Wednesday, December 20 at Terminal West

Showtime: 6:45 PM, Doors open 6 PM, Silent Auction 6-11:15 PM

Advance tickets $25 ADV/$35 Day of Show

The countdown is ON, with just eight days remaining to pure musical ecstasy supporting a wonderful cause and dedicated to a musician so revered by so many. Y’all this edition has been a seven month process on several levels of comprehension, and those who are fortunate to attend will certainly feel that energy. Songs are being exchanged amongst the musicians, potential set lists are forming, and yes, there will be some surprises!

Please welcome the talented saxophone player Bryan Lopes and trumpet extraordinaire Joey “Papa J” Sommerville to the lineup. I first saw Bryan perform over 20 years ago with Jeff Sipe, Count M’Butu and Ricky Keller at Smith’s Olde Bar, performing in an avant-garde sort of way.  Both Papa J and Madrid Express trombonist Daniel Wytanis participated in the Hampton70 Concert at the Fox Theatre in May, and rest assured this trio of horn players will tear it up with Jim Lauderdale and within the Zambi Jam Finale in addition to wherever else it makes sense! Needless to say we’re looking forward to what promises to be an incredibly special night of music!

The schedule is as follows:

6:00 PM ~ Doors Open, Silent Auction open until 11:15 PM

6:45 PM – 7:45 PM ~ Ralph Roddenbery & Friends

8:15 PM – 9:15 PM ~ Jim Lauderdale

9:45 PM – 10:45 PM ~ ZambiGrass Jam, featuring Jeff Mosier, Larry Keel, Nick DiSebastian, Bobby Miller, Jared Womack (Live Auction begins)

11:15 PM – 12:30 AM ~ Zambi Jam Finale, featuring Jeff Mosier, Count M’Butu, Johnny Knapp, The Madrid Express, Zambi Horns & special guests! 

I can’t implore upon you enough what it means to have your support of the Holiday Hootenanny, Atlanta Habitat, and a love for great music. Get a sitter, drop what you’re doing, and just come on! You will be thankful that you made that decision. Below is Jim Lauderdale from last year’s edition performing Headed For The Hills – enjoy!

Hootenanny time is almost upon us! Artist preview: Secondhand Swagger, Sam French

3 Sep

Wow y’all!  We sure have rounded that corner quickly, and the 17th installment of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny is just about here!  I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend and that your team won! 😉

Now that we’re into September and just over two weeks out, you can clear your head for a moment and realize that you not only WANT to go to Hootenanny, but you also NEED to go!  The amazing energy that is created at Cherokee Farms – the camaraderie of your friends, camping neighbors and musicians – the spontaneity of the jams – the amazing flow of this tightly wound small festie that releases a giant multi-layered musical explosion – the knowledge that you WILL hear something you’ve not heard before and it will make an impact on your already impeccable musical tastes.  These are all great qualities of what a Hootenanny is at the core, a joyful healing and re-energizing experience for the mind, body and soul.  TICKETS & LODGING INFO

For those of you who are not familiar with Sam French, well that’s a great reason to show up on Friday night, September 19, at the Hootenanny!  This man is drenched in southern, his style genuine, and his product real.  Ted Norton, guitarist for The Grapes, will be joining Sam’s band that night and also be around all weekend long sitting in as an artist-at-large.  Below is some fine video of Sam and his band performing an original, “Few Regrets”.  Enjoy!

The 3rd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny is going to be epic, to put it simply.  There are going to be some surprises, no doubt, and the listed lineup is yet again an A++ group of musicians that represent Georgia and the Southeast as well as any in letting the world know how freakin’ amazing our energy, talent, soul, and rhythm truly are.  You’ll see it all on one stage in various formations.  Breakdown of the concert to come!

This year, we are incorporating a silent auction into the mix, and I must say there are some pretty nifty items to be auctioned or raffled off, including an electric guitar donated by the one and only Col. Bruce Hampton and to be signed by a group of who’s who at the Christmas Jam in Asheville the weekend before!  Stay tuned for an updated list to be released in the next week or so.

TDawg Presents is excited to have the participation of Tree Leaf Music, a subsidiary of Tree Sound Studios in archiving this year’s Holiday Hootenanny.  We will be working towards a release of the show for download purchase, with proceeds to benefit Atlanta Habitat for Humanity!

Stay tuned for more info soon, but PLEASE support the cause and buy a ticket to what can be regarded as the concert of the year by many!  Advance tickets ($30 adv/$35 dos) are available online through the Terminal West website and the box office is open Tue-Fri 11-5, as well as any night where we have another show, should you want to avoid a service charge.

Here’s a fantastic clip from last year’s Holiday Hootenanny featuring Papa Mali, Jimmy Hall, Oteil Burbridge, and a host of others!
