HOOT and Hollers perform original music from a catalogue of more than 85 songs, most of which have been recorded by Tent Show Troubadours. These songs have been arranged for an acoustic (or semi-acoustic) duo or trio. These songs have roots in folk, rock and country. They are American originals in the singer/songwriter tradition.
HOOT and Hollers pepper performances in select covers — but always with their own twist. Don't take our word for it, come out to a show. We're pretty sure darn you'll be tapping your toes by the end of the night.
