Last weekend, I made it upstate for one of three days at the 2nd Annual Summer Hoot – a fun little festival with a big lineup put together by my friends Mike + Ruthy on a gorgeous piece of land near the Ashokan Reservoir (a.k.a. NYC’s tap water). Brilliantly curated with strong old legends like Jay Ungar & Molly Mason and David Broomberg, as well as some diverse modern flavor from folks like Brooklyn rock pianist Marco Benevento, who absolutely blew my mind, Spirit Family Reunion who got folks dancin, Small Houses and Kirstin Andreassen who rocked the Pewter House and much more, the Hoot was appropriately named. Check out a few Instas of the day below.
Between the two main stages, a video session house in the Pewter House, a damn fine food village and zoned camping (rowdy folks and decent folks), this is worth three days y’all. Next year I’m camping.
