Hoot & Holler and George Jackson Band

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 7:30 pm

Hoot & Holler
Brought together by a mutual love for American folk music, Amy Alvey (fiddle, guitar) and Mark Kilianski (guitar, banjo) have been entertaining audiences all over the U.S. with their tight duo sound since 2013.

Based in Asheville, N.C., they specialize in the soulful grit of old time Appalachian mountain music, with their original songs blending seamlessly alongside their traditional repertoire. Both are equally inspired by mountain musicians like Roscoe Holcomb and Ola Belle Reed as they are to revered songsmiths like Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt.

In 2015, urged by the rising cost of living in Boston, they decided to hit the road full time in a high-top camper van named “Irene” and have toured all over the country. They travel most of the year in the van and play concert halls and festivals like Old Tone Music Festival, Watermelon Park Bluegrass Festival, and the Blackpot Festival in Lafayette, Louisiana.

The George Jackson Band
Award Winning New Zealand Fiddler George Jackson presents an original, fresh take on old-time music, leading a quartet featuring Brad Kolodner, Alex Lacquement and Mark Kilianski.

Jackson will perform songs from his debut album, Time and Place, a mesmerizing collection of original fiddle tunes reflecting an uncannily deep understanding of American roots traditions that hold true to his New Zealand musical heritage and identity.

George has toured as a fiddler for hire with bands and artists such as Front Country, Peter Rowan and tours regularly as a part of the Missy Raines Trio.
