A lot of work has gone into making this year’s edition of the Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny extra special to celebrate the life, music & energy of Col. Bruce Hampton. I am grateful to be producing this wonderful show that benefits Atlanta Habitat for Humanity with the help from some amazingly talented friends (including Larry Keel!), and the only thing that will be missing is YOU! Come on over for what promises to be a unique night of music that won’t be presented in such a way again – find a sitter if you need to and just do it!

If you need encouragement, please read this great preview of the Holiday Hootenanny written by Jerry Grillo and published in Atlanta Magazine online:

Holiday Hootenanny Artist Profile ~ Count M’Butu

We are just two weeks out from what promises to be one of the finest concerts of the year, celebrating life, music, family, friendship, and charity. One artist whose talent, friendship and love of family is undeniable is Grammy-winning percussionist Count M’Butu. His return to the Holiday Hootenanny has been four years in the making. We in the Atlanta music community and the Col. Bruce army of fans, musicians, writers, promoters, and friends are overjoyed to have him back in our mix and a part of the Holiday Hoot! Part of legendary Col. Bruce Hampton & the Aquarium Rescue Unit in the early ’90s – in my eyes one of the greatest bands of all-time – as well as the Derek Trucks Band for many years after that, Count’s presence in the Atlanta music scene has a special place, and as a long-time friend of mine, I personally cannot WAIT to see him back on the Holiday Hootenanny stage! The video below is from the 2nd Annual edition of the Holiday Hoot, and features Count M’Butu SINGING Willie Nelson’s classic “Always On My Mind” with the help of some friends, about as real and genuine as it gets. Enjoy!
