The Athens Folk Music and Dance Society’s Hoot concert showcase returns after a summer-long hiatus for a special North Georgia Folk Festival preview edition. This year’s folk fest happens Saturday, Oct. 8, and the performers at Monday’s Hoot will give folks a glimpse of what to expect from this year’s gathering. Featured musicians include trad-folk duo Hog-Eyed Man, whose Jason Cade recently won first place in the fiddle competition at the Appalachian String Band Music Festival, along with singer-songwriter Cortez Garza and bluegrass group Borderhop Trio. Longtime Hoot organizer Susan Staley will open and host the show.
