Help the Hootenanny Uproot

We thank you for checking out our profile, and most of all, supporting our music!! We, more than anything in the whole world, love to play music. We live for the opportunity to travel, and play for different groups of people. Having already toured extensively, we are acutely aware of how difficult it is for bands to be successful without the proper tools. Having a reliable, and economic, vehicle is paramount... We're in the final stages of putting our 3rd studio album together (holding off on the artwork, as hopefully we'll have to add some names to the special contributions page of the CD!) and we're excited to get on the road, in support of that project. We have tours being organized around a number of music festivals, such as Hickoryfest, and Fingerlakes Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance, that have invited us to play, but, without a vehicle, we'll be hard pressed to make it. These are great opportunities for emerging artists to showcase original music, and launch fruitful musical careers.
Once we're on the road, the hard work begins.. Long nights of playing, early rising to hit the road, traveling all day just to do it again.. But, we wouldn't have it any other way! We've done 4 tours of ireland, (self financed) 2 Eastern US (self financed) released 2 studio albums, and are finishing our a third (all independent). we've always made personal sacrifices to reinvest in the band, and we truly believe that those sacrifices have allowed us to be able to move forward as much as we have. It's time for us to make a bigger jump, and expose our music, and especially our live shows, to a new and larger group of people.Again, we thank you for your continued support! We have the kindest, and most generous fans on the planet!!
