Bi-coastal singer-songwriters and instrumentalists Mark Kilianski and Amy Alvey, better known as Hoot and Holler, are touring the East Coast with brand new album “Reasons to Run”.
Amy (fiddle, vocals) and Mark (guitar, vocals) present a hearty dose of traditional songs and tunes on fiddle, guitar, and banjo as well as original songs and compositions. In 2016, Hoot and Holler toured the continental US, from San Diego to Seattle, Michigan to Maine, the plains to the mountains, and everywhere in between, opening for Bluegrass juggernaut Ricky Skaggs, and being featured on Jerry Springer’s podcast “Tales, Tunes, and Tomfoolery,”. It’s easy to be be informed of their heavy rambling by the varied soundscapes in their music, like a sonic cross country road trip from the dingy Louisiana swamp to the stark and sparse beauty of a Southwestern desert. After spending two months soaking in the rich mountain music of Asheville, North Carolina, Mark and Amy are heading back out on the road again.
Whether these Berklee College of Music alumni share the stage or command it on their own, the performance will be spring-loaded with rare energy and exceptional musicality as they unleash their best, and freshest works.
“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.” -Patrick Coman DJ of Local Folk on WAMU
