=============================

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. 

Vassar & TDawg 2002

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:

When: Thursday, December 20, 2018 

Where: The Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307

Vassar & TDawgThe 8th Annual Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny is dedicated to the memory of the late great fiddler Vassar Clements, whose career spanned seven decades. Vassar performed alongside many musical luminaries, including Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Linda Ronstadt, Jerry Garcia, Peter Rowan, David Grisman, Stephane Grappelli, Dicky Betts, John Hartford, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Col. Bruce Hampton and so many more. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him and get to know him on a personal level. On a side note, Vassar first performed with Col. Bruce at HarvestFest in 1999. The WOW factor was in full effect needless to say as Vassar simply tore it up on “Time is Free” that also featured Barry Richman on guitar.

Please plan to join us on Thursday, December 20 for our “annual holiday party” that never fails to provide a WOW factor by the end, and rest assured this one will be no different!

TDawg Presents July Shows + Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny Update

19 Jun

Well folks, as I’ve completed my 50th revolution around the sun and begun my 51st, there’s nothing like some excellent musical opportunities to continue the celebration well into the summer. The month of July provides you with two opportunities to attend some stellar TDawg Presents shows (indoors in the AC!) – July 20 featuring Strung Like A Horse w/ special guest Hair of the Dog AND July 29 featuring the 11th Annual Jerry Day ATL! Please continue reading for more information about each of these events!

I know it’s only the 3rd week in June, but plans are well underway for the 8th Annual Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny to happen on Thursday, December 20, and once again it will benefit Atlanta Habitat for Humanity. TDawg Presents has donated over $11,000  the last five years. I am excited to announce that TDawg Presents will be taking the Holiday Hoot back to its original home, the Variety PlayhouseThis edition, as all the previous have been, will be extra special – as it will feature a wonderful dedication to the late great fiddler, Vassar Clements. The first time he performed with Col. Bruce Hampton was HarvestFest in 1999 with Bruce’s band at the time, Planet Zambie, that featured Barry Richman on guitar and Dr. Dan on the keyboards. Bruce crowned him the “King of Kings”. The version of “Time is Free” that came out of that set was absolutely over the top! Vassar & I became good friends, and I feel fortunate that we were able to enjoy his music for a few more years before his passing in 2005. Expect a stellar group of musicians to be involved the celebration of one of the greatest masters of music in the modern era! More to come in the next couple of months.
