Watching multi-instrumentalist Dom Flemons and fiddle player Brian Farrow perform trad tune, “Polly Put the Kettle On” was a little like stepping back in time. Flemons, also know as “The American Songster” is one of the most well versed performers in the old-time folk music scene today. His sets are always part history lesson leaving audiences equally enlighten and entertained, the perfect fit for the vibe of The Hoot. It was not hard to imagine Pete Seeger in the room with us for this session. He would have been pleased.
Beehive Productions will be back filming the Pewter Sessions at the 2017 Winter Hoot! — February 3-5th at the Ashokan Center in Olivebridge, New York.
This is a “pay-what-you-can” festival and proceeds from the event fund Ashokan Center program scholarships for thousands of regional children.
