It’s a little bit country.
Fear not, you rock-and-rollers: The Brooklyn Winter Hoedown, which returns to Superfine in DUMBO this weekend, is not a Tammy Wynette tribute show.
For that, you can thank Dock Oscar, the man behind the Kings County Opry, who is steering the sixth annual Hoedown.
“I’m more of a bluegrassy person,” said Oscar, a South Sloper. “I wanted to give a shout-out to the great bluegrass and old-time fiddle bands.”
The 12 groups performing during the three-day festival include country blues, gospel and some old-school country.
Hoedown regulars, like Jan Bell, the American String Conspiracy, and Oscar’s own band, The Ambassadors of Love, will perform. And Oscar is particularly thrilled about Greg Garing, a singer who learned from bluegrass legend Bill Monroe and has gone on to become a legend in his own right. He’ll perform on Saturday.
“He is the real deal,” Oscar said.
