Hoots & Hellmouth
Enjoy an evening at Wyebrook Farm with Hoots & Hellmouth.
IN THE TREES is an album that feels like an expedition. Through dark tangles of thickets and underbrush, a path winds its way through the density of lived life, finally opening up into a sun-drenched field in which to stretch out, breathe deep, and reflect on the journey...weary travelers dressing wounds while wistfully recalling tales of courage and self-doubt, love and longing.
Our fourth album began to take shape over two years ago in a transformed silversmith mill in the little Philadelphia suburb of Clifton Heights, PA. Mt Slippery, as it is currently known, is home-base for our homies Dr Dog. We assembled with engineer Nathan Sabatino (Dr Dog, Floating Action, Birdie Busch, etc) and over the course of a couple weeks proceeded to coax these songs out of the ether using all manner of instrumentation. The now-classic acoustic H&H sound is certainly present, but as with each record previous, IN THE TREES pushes the band beyond the borders of what came before. Its a natural progression, an obvious evolution. Sparking electric tones set old wood aflame. These songs burn with it.
These songs. While not written around a premeditated theme, each star in this albums constellation seems to gather about the axis of the sacred and profane. An omnipresent sensitivity to spirit gives way on more than one occasion to full-blown physical freak-out. For every blissfully still moment of somber reflection there exists an equal and opposite reaction of explosive self- indulgence. This record represents feast and famine.
Dig in and join us IN THE TREES.

SUMMER STARLIGHT SERIES
We had so much fun with the Summer Starlight Series last year that we decided to do it again and expand it a bit! One or two Thursday nights per month this summer, we will host a special evening concert in the Courtyard starting at 7pm. Tickets are $10/person in advance or $15/person day of show (kids under 5 are free). We will have physical tickets for sale in the Market or you can buy them online by clicking the links below. We are only selling up to 300 tickets for each concert, so we highly encourage you to buy them early.

There are two options that night:
The indoor seating in our Market that night is available by reservations here and will have our normal dinner menu. If you make a reservation, you will be inside. You will not have to purchase a ticket but will not hear the music.
All outdoor tables will require purchased tickets for the concert. Reservations for the concert are not required or available. Outdoor concert seating will be available on a first come, first served basis; doors opening at 6pm. We will offer table service (with waitstaff) for our seated guests in our courtyard, under the pavilion, and in overflow seating down below the wall near the stage. We will be featuring a special, limited menu prepared only for our Summer Starlight Concert Series. Limited lawn seating will be available- guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair. As always, Wyebrook is a BYOB but outside food is NOT permitted for this event.
Parking: We will open one of our pastures for parking, handicap parking available located closer to the Market. Valid handicap parking permit is required.
Dogs: You are welcome to bring your dog to Wyebrook Farm, but we do require that your dog is friendly, on a leash at all times and that you pick up after them.
Children: Because we have a very limited amount of seats for these concerts, children are welcome but everyone over 5 will need a ticket.
Weather: We will do our best to keep the shows on because most of the bands are traveling a good distance to come play at Wyebrook. However, in the event of a cancelation due to severe weather, purchased tickets will be refunded.
