Sunday 25th August (Bank Holiday weekend)
The Carlile Institute, Meltham, Huddersfield
Hoot & Holler is a groovy young folk/roots duo that blends old time Appalachian traditions with fine contemporary songwriting and musicianship on fiddle, guitar and banjo. Brought together by a mutual love for American folk music, Amy Alvey and Mark Kilianski have been entertaining audiences all over the USA since 2013. Both Amy and Mark are alumni of the prestigious Berklee College of Music and after cutting their teeth on Boston’s lively roots music scene, Amy and Mark spent the better part of 2016 touring the United States while living in their camper van “Irene”. Inspired by the enduring spirit of traditional Appalachian music, they now make their home in Asheville, North Carolina, and combine the polished technique of their musical training with the grit, drive, and soul of their musical heroes, legendary mountain musicians like Roscoe Holcomb and Ola Belle Reed.
“Hoot and Holler’s roots dig deep into the hills of Appalachian folk tunes and fiddle driven melodies. They blend two voices and instruments harmoniously in a way that is, for lack of better phrasing, perfect harmony. ” – Red Line Roots
