TDawg Presents is excited to bring you the 2nd edition of what is turning into an annual tradition of spontaneous jams amongst friends celebrating the holiday season the only way it should be done. Featuring recording artists from original legendary Capricorn Records bands Wet Willie and (Rock & Roll Hall of fame inductees) The Allman Brothers Band, The 7 Walkers, as well as members of Grammy winning The Derek Trucks Band, The Tedeschi Trucks Band, Col. Bruce Hampton & The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Blueground Undergrass, The Mosier Brothers Band, Atlanta favorites Deep Blue Sun & The Whiskey Gentry, and many more, the 2nd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny is certainly raising the ante from last year’s inaugural event that tore the roof off of the Variety Playhouse.

The roster of musicians is an A-list of Atlanta-area musicians and influential regional and national acts: New Orleans icon and 7 Walkers front-man Papa Mali, Col. Bruce Hampton, Ret., who recently received the Governor’s Award for the Arts & Humanities, Allman Brothers Band bassist Oteil Burbridge, flat-pick master Larry Keel, Wet Willie front-man Jimmy Hall, The Mosier Brothers, Grammy-winner Count M’Butu, Hammond B3 legend Ike Stubblefield, Grant Green Jr., Jeff Sipe, Deep Blue Sun, Gaurav Malhotra, Rurik Nunan plus more surprise guests! The performance will have three distinct sets that feature unique combinations of artists, bringing out the best in each jam and leaving plenty of room within a little bit of structure for a lot of spontaneity.

This year’s 2nd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny is proud to have additional support from local music school Music on Main Street, Tree Leaf Music/Tree Sound Studios, and Wildman Steve Radio.

TDawg Presents founder Thomas Helland (aka TDawg) started as TDawg’s Productions in 1998, and is the creator of the nationally known Blue Ridge HarvestFest, a 3-day camping festival that ended its run in 2005, as well as the current run of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny series at Cherokee Farms in northwest Georgia since 2006. Over the last 14 years, TDawg has remained a true cultivator- a music farmer- of American and international roots music stretching from bluegrass and Americana to funk, jazz, blues and jam bands and is excited to collaborate once again with organic label Tree Leaf Music, a subsidiary of 100% sustainable Tree Sound Studios, to create this fine gathering of old friends and magnificent musicians, all tied into one package for The 2nd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny.
