A little music history at the Holiday Hootenanny

13 Dec

The first two editions of Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny have featured southern music luminaries, and this year’s is no different.  I am very excited to be able to present three music visionaries that date back to the 70’s with their respective music repertoires.

Randall Bramblett, Tommy Talton & John Cowan helped to define an era of music discovery that ranged from the classic Capricorn Records in Macon and acts like The Allman Brothers Band, Cowboy, Marshall Tucker Band, and Sea Level to the progressive “new grass” sound created by the likes of the late John Hartford and New Grass Revival in the early 70’s, which originally featured Sam Bush, Cowan, Dr. Dobro Curtis Burch, and the late Courtney Johnson in the 70’s and Bela Fleck and Pat Flynn in the 80’s (replaced Burch & Johnson).  These two styles have merged many times over the years for what turns out to be a match made in musical heaven, and the 3rd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny is going to certainly showcase those two styles.

And you here you have some vintage John Cowan with a great prelude by Sam Bush talking about John.

Here’s a clip of Tommy Talton Band performing last March in NYC at the Hittin’ the Note party.
