HOOTENANNY

Posted by Anais Dervaes

If you've not been to one of our Sunday evening Hootenannies than you are missing out on not only good food and music but tradition too!

Do you know the history of the "hootenanny?"

Hootenanny is an Appalachian colloquialism that was used in early twentieth century

During the early 1960s at the height of the Folk Music Woody Guthrie & Pete Seeger's newly formed folk-protest group, the Almanac Singers worked out of a loft in New York City hosting regular (Sunday afternoon) concerts called "hootenannys", a word Pete and Woody had picked up in their cross-country travels.

  1. I am so excited to find you ! This is exactly what I have dreamed about doing for some time. I now have a spot...I have a lot with gravel and weeds but I see a jungle of eatables and flowers for the farmers market. I am hoping to support my life this way as I am a middle aged women.. I just have to decide where to start. It has to be very low budget for me. I think I will start with straw bale gardening. I will be closely perusing your site. I have a lot of decisions to make make. I would love to meet you all and see the place. I am in Oregon. Good Job Guys !!! Good for you.
