World-class fiddler and surf guitar master ERIK HOKKANEN plays every first Thursday starting in April 2015. In 1984, at age 21, Erik moved to Austin, TX and joined Gary P. Nunn’s band and toured throughout the Southwest. He was voted a three time winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival Music Awards’ “Instrumentalist of the year” (1993-1995) and was inducted into the Kerville Festival’s Music Hall of Fame in 1996. This year also saw John Travolta dancing to Erik’s fiddle music (“Erik’s Two Step”) in the movie “Michael.”
MAZEL TOV KOCKTAIL HOUR: Klezmer, or Yiddish music, can be described as the traditional music of the Jews of Eastern Europe, Ukraine, Russia, and central Europe. Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour is a group of seasoned musicians, each with 20-30 years experience playing music professionally, who have chosen to study this form of traditional music and carry it on. Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour focuses on re-imagining the style based on the earliest known (and surviving) recordings made in the style, mostly from before 1930.
