Description of Music
 

Hoot and Holler are the sum of two parts: guitarist Mark Kilianski and fiddler Amy Alvey.  They are songwriters and instrumentalists dedicated to honing their craft.  Mark and Amy draw influence from wordsmiths like Gillian Welch and Townes van Zandt, as well as authentic mountain musicians like Roscoe Holcomb and Ola Belle Reed.  In 2016, they lived out of a camper van and played shows across the country.  Their enduring love of American folk music bases them in Asheville, North Carolina when not on the road.

Both have received scholarships to the Blackpot music camp as well as Augusta Heritage Center to study the stylistic nuances of cajun and appalachian music. They have taught workshops in Old Time Fiddle, Old Time and Bluegrass Guitar, and Vocal Harmony at Blackpot and Dare To Be Square DMV. When performing traditional music, be it old time/bluegrass/country, the priority remains of bringing their own voice to the stage.

Instrument swapping is common during a performance.  Sometimes they don two guitars, other times switching to fiddle and banjo, seamlessly blending their vocals as they sing their songs infused with the vitality of the landscapes which they have traveled.
