Is it a gathering, a shindig, a hootenanny, or a flootenanny?

Flootenanny, noun.
Pronunciation: /fluːt(ə)nænɪ/
1. Crowd-sourced musical chaos with Hound of the Buskervilles and The Survival of the Flootest Disharmonic Orchestra.
2. An unpredictable spontaneous instrumental combustion event known to occur when Flutophones and Slide Whistles are found in close proximity to children and inebriated adults.

For more information about gatherings, shindigs, hootenannies, and Flootenannies, please follow this link (on some browsers, you may need to fast forward to the 20:38 mark).

A whole mess of Floot and a little bit of nanny....

Will there be a Flootenanny this Sunday at Clifton's Pizza?  It's impossible to say.  But Hound of the Buskervilles will be there.

Clifton's Pizza Company, Sunday November 30, 6:30-9:30.

"Wyoming Wind," by Mark Erelli.

Click here if you're listening on a mobile device!

Mark Erelli is as versatile and interesting a singer-songwriter as you could ever hope to encounter.

His contributions to the Darwin Song Project were superb.  In fact, the entire album, which features several great writers, deserves your attention. If you're not familiar with it, there's a description on wikipedia, and it's available via Mark's website or from various vendors.

Erelli's most recent album, Milltowns, is a tribute to the late, great Bill Morrissey.

In addition to those projects, Erelli has released 10 or so other albums.

This song, "Wyoming Wind," comes from his 2010 album Seven Curses, a duo recording with Jeffrey Foucault.

Dan and and Marty are once again playing at The Rudyard Kipling brunch while Phil and Eddie sleep in. Lucky Hounds, they!

"Whenever It Snows." Buskervilles and brunch at The Rudyard Kipling.

Dan and Marty playing, singing, and waiting for the caffeine to kick in on a recent Sunday morning at The Rudyard Kipling. It's a tune from the Australian trio Tex, Don, & Charlie.  "Whenever It Snows."

Hound of the Buskervilles will NOT be at Sol Aztecas this Friday, but our friend Mickey Clark will be!

Hound of the Buskervilles is switching dates with our friend the excellent singer-songwriter Mickey Clark.

This Friday, November 14, Mickey & The Blue Norther with special guest Michael Cleveland on fiddle, will give you more music than you can handle.

First they play WFPK's Live Lunch at noon (91.9 FM).  Then they'll move on to Sol Aztecas for night of music.  It should be a great night.  We've played Sol Aztecas a number of times.  The acoustics are very clean. The seating is comfortable. Service is friendly. The only problem is that it's pretty tough for a musician to stay focused when somebody carries a sizzling platter of fajitas right in front of you!

Hound of the Buskervilles will be at Sol Aztecas the following Friday, November 21.

Sol Aztecas is at 5612 Bardstown Road.  The music starts at 6:30 and runs until 9:30.

The Buskervilles Groove

A prime example of the Buskervilles Groove.

Dan Boone, mandolin. Eddie Hysinger, harp.  Phil Ragland, guitar.

Unknown pilot, flyover.

Buskervilles Brunch at The Rudyard Kipling

Start your Sunday with biscuits and gravy and a Buskervilles Groove.

While the other Hounds sleep in, Dan and Marty will be hanging out at the omelet station, nibbling on smoked fish, scarfing down desserts imported from Nord's bakery, and sipping spicy Bloody Marys.

And if we all those other activities don't get in the way, we'll also play some music.  From 10-2.  

The Rudyard Kipling has been in new hands since early this year.  Amy and William Enix, formerly of That Place on Goss (where they introduced their famous Sunday brunch buffet) have renovated and refurbished the space. They've rejuvenated the kitchen. And basically they've restored the Rud to where Ken and Sheila Pyle had it in its prime.

Here's a shot of the interior:

I wrote about the Rud in May (before I resigned from the dining beat at the Courier-Journal).  Here's the story:

Do join us. The Rudyard Kipling is at 422 W. Oak Street.
