Hoot and Holler at First Friday Coffeehouse
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Hoot and Holler will be the First Friday Coffeehouse feature performer on Friday, April 5. The popular concert series is held at Trinity Orchard House, 4599 Shepherdstown Road, Martinsburg, W.Va.
Doors open for social time and open mic sign-ups at 7 p.m. Open mic starts at 7:15 p.m. and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Performers have the opportunity to showcase their talent in an 8-minute segment to an attentive audience in one of the area’s premier listening rooms.
Brought together by a mutual love for American folk music, Amy Alvey (fiddle, guitar) and Mark Kilianski (guitar, banjo) have been entertaining audiences since 2013. Their name is a nod to the “hootenanny” song gatherings during the folk revival of the 1960s, while also hinting at the infectious energy that occurs during a barn dance. Ever inspired by the enduring spirit of traditional Appalachian music, the duo’s songwriting and musicianship is as fresh to the ears as it is good. Both are Berklee College of Music (Boston) alumni.
“Hoot and Holler weave together timeless melodies and virtuosic playing with just enough scrappy energy to keep things from getting too precious. It’s a fresh and distinctive blend that can only earned the hard way ... through thousands of miles and hundreds of nights on the road,” said Patrick Coman of WUMB’s Local Folk.
