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

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!
