JUNE 2014 HOKUM HOEDOWN!!

The monthly Hokum Hoedown square dance and old-timey music series continues at 7 p.m. Friday, June 6, at the Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St. in Downtown Boise's Linen District. $7 per person. All ages, full bar (I.D. required). Plenty of free, off-street parking is available at the Linen Building.

NOTE: This will be the last square dance until the series resumes in the fall. There will be no square dances in July or August.

The popular Hokum Hoedown is a modern take on the old-time hootenanny featuring the infectious swing of the Hokum Hi-Flyers acoustic string band.

At each Hoedown (first Friday of every month), the Hokum boys perform a diverse assortment of traditional folk-dance and string-band tunes while a cast of colorful callers directs the dances.

In addition to square dancing, the Hokum Hoedown features some good old-fashioned, swingin’, two-steppin’ western dancing. Young and old, couples and families, tattooed hipsters and ten-gallon cowboys ... the Hokum Hoedown is a come-as-you-are, hand-clappin’ hootenanny for all.

ABOUT HOKUM HI-FLYERS: We play Appalachian old-time mountain music, as well as other forms of unplugged 1920s/30s American roots music (Cajun, swing, traditional country). Our high-energy fiddle tunes will get you on your feet and hollerin' at the rafters. We serve up Hokum and we serve it hot!

THE HOKUM HI-FLYERS ARE:

Scott Knickerbocker: banjo, guitar, fiddle, vocals
Jonah Shue: fiddle, guitar, mandolin, vocals
Travis Ward: guitar, vocals
Gary Shue: guitar, mandolin
Patrick Harren: harmonica

Dare To Be Square West ~ November 2013

 This last November I went to D2BS West-LA to a weekend of square dance calling and dancing.  These workshop weekends are inspiring, invigorating and pleasantly exhausting.  Here is a video documentary of the weekend and the good folks who helped put it together and inspired it.
I would personally like to thank the Idaho Commission on the Arts for the grant award I received to attend this workshop.
