David Lutken and "The Seat of the Pants Band" are back by popular demand this Labor Day for another virtual hootenanny! This FREE special event includes a mix of pre-recorded songs, live jam sessions, and requests from the audience. Featuring performances by Eric Anthony, Brittany Brook, Maggie Hollinbeck, David Lutken, Andy Teirstein, and Spiff Wiegand, many of whom you might know from recent productions like Woody Sez, Ring of Fire, and Our Town.

Watch, listen, and bring your voice or favorite instrument to play and sing along to classics including "Working Man Blues", "Earth to Heaven", "Dark as a Dungeon", "Pastures of Plenty", "Church Street Blues", "Which Side Are You On?", "Boney Fingers", and "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting". 

Only the musicians will be seen or heard throughout the live-streamed event, so show up when you can and leave when you need to. We just ask that you register in advance so we can get a headcount.

Can't make it? There will be a one-time rebroadcast of this event on September 6 at 2pm. Click here to register for the replay!

“There’s only one rule at a Hootenanny: if you know the words, you have to sing! And the corollary to that is—once we’ve done the chorus ten or fifteen times, you ought to know the words!” - David Lutken
