The Athens Folk Music and Dance Society’s monthly Hoot takes on a noticeably pinkish hue for its February installment with the sixth annual Sweetheart Duets concert, a free showcase of musical pairs that also happen to be romantic pairs, too. The list of performers, which includes lauded local songwriter Jim White and his partner Megan Baer, as well as local members of Red Oak Southern String Band, The Burning Angels, The HEAP, Cicada Rhythm and more, suggests this will be an interesting and informative evening, as many of the couples involved don’t normally collaborate—at least not publicly. Organizer Susan Staley explains, “I’ve told them they don’t have to play love songs, but what they choose to sing will be very telling.”
