The 8th Annual Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny ~ Thursday, Dec 20 @ The Variety Playhouse

2016 Holiday Hoot Jam

TDawg Presents is thrilled to bring you the eighth edition of what has become one of the finest holiday concert celebrations in Atlanta, the Holiday Hootenanny! I am thrilled to bring it back home to the Variety Playhouse, where it all began in December 2011.

Proceeds from the concert and silent auction will benefit Atlanta Habitat for Humanity. Atlanta Habitat transforms communities by acting as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization through education, innovative development, partnerships and long term relationships with families. Our vision is an Atlanta where all people have access to quality affordable housing in safe, vibrant neighborhoods with opportunities to thrive. For more information about Atlanta Habitat for Humanity, please visit the Atlanta Habitat website, www.atlantahabitat.org.

The concert will have four sets, totaling over four hours of music and featuring up to 20 musicians on stage at once. The 2018 edition of the Atlanta Holiday Hootenanny will feature a dedication to the late Vassar Clements, who passed away in 2005. He transcended several genres with his fiddle playing, including performing with Bill Monroe, Jerry Garcia, Stephan Grapelli, and the great Django Reinhardt. Vassar also created his own form of music called Hillbilly Jazz, combining elements of Western swing, jazz, country and even rock, to form a sound all its own.

Lineup announcements and ticket information coming very soon, so stay tuned! Please spread the good word!
