Hoot 'n Annie String Band

Hoot ‘n Annie is a vocal centric string band. They sing songs that are fun to sing in harmony backed by fiddle, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, cello and guitar. In 2011, at the beginning of the Wisconsin Capitol crackdown, people gathered daily to sing songs of Solidarity from 12-1pm. At this Solidarity Singalong, musicians who also played instruments would gather to accompany the singers, calling themselves The Learning Curve, and many of them would stick around after the 12-1 protest to play folk songs. Some gospel, some Americana. All were fun to sing in harmony. New friendships were born. More singing and playing together was wanted. These new friends went looking for a place to play in the evenings where adult beverages and more songs could be sung and played. For the past 10 years, Hoot ‘n Annie String Band has been performing about once a week in Madisonand has two CDs recorded.
