Joe Jewell and Featherstone
Hammer Dulcimer maestro Joe Jewell

and staff as the hardest working performer on the circuit. He is a high-energy,
audience interactive musician with a diverse and very large repertoire.
Joined by Ky Hote's dangerous guitar playing in 1998,
their repertoire has only grown more diverse and exciting.

Ky Hote is instrumental on 2 Featherstone albums:

    • the them from "Carmen"

their eclectic style and wide repertoire

Restaurant dinner Music, Psychedelic Showcases
and many other venues.

Gypsy Rox

A young duo with ancient Gypsy and Celtic roots. Fiddler Lauren Mahlerox and the adventurous guitar player Ky Hote present a feast of instrumentals and songs. Their much heralded premier Tennessee Renaissance Festival in 2007 had fans clamoring for a debut recording immediately. They were the featured performers at the Royal Court Dances as well as impressing audiences throughout the faire. The standard repertoire sounds fresh in their hands. Fantasies of Eastern Europe and minstrels passing through town infect the minds of patrons and vendors alike who chance upon them walking down the lane. Their musical wanderings are well arranged and appropriate for any scenario.

Ky and Mike

Ky Hote and Micheal Huebner are an eclectic duo
drawing from rock and roll, jazz and traditional roots.
Best suited for guitar and full trap set, Ky's original songs are brought to life
for any rocking gathering. Their willingness to take chances
and exploit the natural timing they have with each other means
they might bring out a piano, penny whistle, bass or special guest at any moment.
