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

Speaking of soul, check out this southern soulful groove laid down by Secondhand SwaggerThese folks will be rockin’ the infamous “Happy Hour Set” from 5-6:30PM on SAT Sept 20!  And folks, the musical mojo will kickin’ hard that day! 

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!

Spread the good word to your friends and family, y’all, as HOOT #17 promises to be as good as advertised!  HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTENANNY!!!

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!
