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

TDawg Presents is excited to be partnering up with Terminal West in Atlanta (THU 3/20) and Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA (FRI 3/21) to promote two special nights featuring flat-pick extraordinaire Larry Keel opening for some upstart bluegrass/jamgrass fellas one night and a true living legend of the music the other.  GREENSKY BLUEGRASS will headline at Terminal West on March 20 and SAM BUSH will headline at the GA Theatre on March 21.  You can’t really go wrong with these two shows!

Following these two stellar nights of some mighty fine sounds, come on over to the Red Light Cafe on SAT MARCH 22 for an evening with Grateful Dead Hour host and well-respected songwriter/performer/author David Gans and Ohio-based Rumpke Mountain Boys.  Please read below for more details.

3/20 ~ Greensky Bluegrass & Larry Keel @ Terminal West.  Doors 7pm, Showtime 8pm, $17 Adv/$20 door

Featuring some of the freshest energy to hit the the bluegrass and jamgrass scenes in a while, Michigan-based Greensky Bluegrass has been absolutely tearing it up across the country and show no signs of stopping!  My good friend and bluegrass buddy Larry Keel, regarded by most as one of the finest flat-pick guitarists on the planet, will open the show and sit in with Greensky.

Come early and have dinner at Stationside, which is an extension of Terminal West and quite delicious!

3/21 ~ Sam Bush with Larry & Jenny Keel @ Georgia Theatre.  Doors 8pm, Showtime 9pm, $20 Adv

Founding member of legendary newgrass pioneers New Grass Revival, Sam Bush is known by all as King of Telluride and King of Newgrass, among many other accolades!  He is truly a living legend & mandolin maestro (also national fiddle champion at 17!)  and shows absolutely no signs of slowing down, nor should he.  Always a treat to see Larry Keel perform alongside Sam Bush – I’m sure you’ll see something of the sort!

There is wonderful rooftop restaurant at the Georgia Theatre for you to enjoy before, during and after, as well as the scene around town that makes Athens, GA one  of the finest college towns in the country!

3/22 ~ TDawg Presents David Gans & Rumpke Mountain Boys @ Red Light Cafe.  Doors 8pm, Showtime 9pm, $10 Adv/$12 Door

Singer-songwriter-guitarist-radio producer/host-author-journalist-record producer-photographer David Gans is widely known as the man behind the long-time, nationally-syndicated radio show Grateful Dead Hour, although his musical side is equally if not more impressive. The list of musicians with whom he has shared the stage includes Phil Lesh, Donna the Buffalo, Henry Kaiser, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Ollabelle, the late great Vassar Clements, Jim Lauderdale, The String Cheese Incident, Peter Rowan, and moe., to name just a few. He has also written
songs with a host of others, including Jim Page, Lorin Rowan, and Robert Hunter.

For over ten years, Ohio’s #1 bluegrass band, the Rumpke Mountain Boys, have been amassing devoted fans with their signature blend of jamgrass, aptly named “Trashgrass.” Phenomenal songwriting framed by fiery-fast mandolin, banjo, acoustic guitar and upright bass, creates a sound that has been described as foot-stompin’ whiskey-spillin’ old-timey psychedelic folk music!
