August 21-23. Once again it’s time for the Ashokan Center’s annual Summer Hoot, three days of world-class roots music, dancing, camping, hiking, food and craft vendors, and all-around family fun. Currently in its third year, the Hoot is already one of the East Coast’s most beloved folk music-based gatherings and a much-anticipated tour stop for many of the traditional scene’s leading artists. The 2015 roster stars hosts Mike and Ruthy, Baby Gramps, Amy Helm and the Handsome Strangers, Loudon Wainwright III, Tony Trishcka and Michael Daves, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, Astrograss, Erin McKeown, the Big Takeover, the Wiyos, Elizabeth Mitchell and You Are My Flower, Moonshine Holler, and others. (The Square Dance and Cajun BBQ kicks off August 8; Southern Week brings Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys and more August 9-15.) See website for schedule. $75 full weekend, $30-$40 per day.
