maybe the ubiquitous Hoot session has its roots in the folk festival workshop when i think about it ... except vimeo-ized aesthetically and restricted to one performer?

actually, it's probably just La Blogotheque as UrSession tbh

i have some good folk festival workshop stories actually

basically, the idea behind a folk fest workshop is to encourage spontaneous collaboration between festival performers, usually with a theme or prompt supposedly relevant to the performers' work to guide improvisation. often, Hoot style singersongwriters will just elect to take turns, because they often aren't rly musically proficient enough to collab or actually ~jam~. so bigger like brass bands and stuff that are usually booked typically fare better in the workshop environment.

one time i was at a folk festival that had inexplicably booked Arto Lindsay, and, being a big fan, i was basically following him around the festival. i remember this one workshop he had been assigned to with all these usual Hoot style songwriters and stuff, and then maybe like a celtic band and a brass band. the Hootbros did the typical turn-taking performing their material, with Lindsay looking increasingly bored before he said that they should "actually jam." what ensued was like probably one of the craziest things ive ever seen at a folk festival with Lindsay's band basically launching into a crazy no wave skronk and he, himself, taking on the role of conductor, conducting various performers in the workshop to improvise.

i will never forget the exasperated looks on the faces of the several Hoot singersongwriters when Lindsay would cycle to them to "improvise." it was so wild - i think i was maybe 1 of 20 people that remained watching at the sidestage over the course of the ensuing 20 min squall of atonal music.

like i remember one dude yelling frustratedly at Lindsay before giving up and futilely attempting to chord along.

also at the end i think Arto had joined the front of the crowd and was "conducting" people from the ground below
