winter hoot • Feb 1-3  2019

The Winter Hoot is a down-home, down-to-earth, music gathering where everyone is welcome and there's joy to spare. Located at the Ashokan Center in Olivebridge, NY (20 min from Woodstock) the event begins with a Friday dinner/documentary/discussion, continues with music & dancing all day/night on Saturday, and ends with a farewell singalong on Sunday. Don't miss the blacksmithing, mini concerts in the pewter shop, holler open mic sessions, kids zone activities, local food & libations, and all-ages crafts by FiberFlame. 

Admission tickets and lodging go on sale November 2018 when lineup is announced.

"Venturing north to the Hudson Valley, the three-day Winter Hoot folk music festival at the Ashokan Center in Olivebridge, New York brings together the folk music community through music, arts, and food. Infused with the spirit of Pete Seeger, Levon Helm, and Woodstock, organizers Mike Merenda and Ruth Ungar want to get young people involved in the folk scene. " -Sachyn Mital
