Every Monday night since 1993 at Dornan’s in Moose, WY, the Hootenanny has been playing acoustic music in a traditional gathering to standing-room-only listeners. With 48 toe-tapping songs, Hoot in the Hole includes an extensive archive of electrifying performances by Tom Rush, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, the Wilders, and Hot Club of Cowtown.
Listen to the sounds of Gene Autry, Jimmie Rodgers, Bob Wills, and Bill Monroe played by local artists such as the dynamic duo Anne and Pete Sibley, John Byrne Cooke, and the singing cowboy – Greg Keckler.
Filmmaker Juliet Sonnenberg of Metamorphose Films filmed the Hoot over 2006 and 2007 in HD. In addition, there are many exclusive interviews and archival footage, forming the critically acclaimed Hoot in the Hole!
Hoot in the Hole-the story of the Jackson Hole Hootenanny has inspired and fascinated audiences at film and music festivals across the country. It won the bronze for Excellence in a Music Documentary at Park City Film Music Festival in addition to being an Official Selection at Big Bear Lake Music Festival, Vail Film Festival, and Appalachian Film Festival. Hoot has also aired on Chicago PBS affiliate WYCC Channel 20, and now it’s available on DVD!
