We Had a Great Day!

A Hoot in the Holler is an all-day music festival that happened on a hot and sunny Sunday afternoon June 22nd.

We all came together to honour Lanark County Interval House’s 35th Anniversary!

Organized by an all-star committee of politicians, musicians and well-known citizens from several communities, this event was a great day of music, food and fun!

With our fantastic Emcee for the day, Mr. Hugh Colton keeping the day moving smoothly and even a surprise visit from ex CFL star, Jock Climie, a good time was had by all and much needed funds were raised for the agency!



Featured Performers

Andy Bowes Bowes Brothers Dave Brown JohnnySpinks Renegade Smokey Rose THe Continentals

The Bowes Brothers – Singing in four-part harmony, with influence from some of country music’s greats, gives the Bowes Brothers the edge that makes them one of the Ottawa Valley’s favourite bands! Add to that, a little yodeling from youngest brother Andy, and a performance packed with energy and humour and you get the Bowes Brothers!

The Continentals – The Continentals are Back! The Continentals were well known in the region as the house band that performed at the Rideau Ferry Inn during the 60’s. After taking a break from playing music together while its members continued playing with new groups, The Continentals are re-uniting and reviving their 60s rock and roll playlist for their 50th Anniversary year! We are honoured that the band has agreed to make the LCIH 35th Anniversary Hoot in the Holler Jamboree one of their performances in their Golden Anniversary year.

RENEGADE is five-piece country/rock band with a lot to offer! Known as an energetic, party band this group will work for any event. Whether performing for festivals, weddings, private parties or a local bar, they are sure to please. Covering songs ranging from the Beatles to Metallica to Miranda Lambert, all members look forward to pleasing the crowd and having a blast at each show. RENEGADE has been called the “Favorite Party Band in the Valley” and are ready to show you why. They are sure to keep you on your feet dancing!

Dave “Brownie” Brown has been entertaining all over the Ottawa Valley for over 40 years. His repertoire of Celtic and Old Time Country Classics appeals to everyone. Dave is probably best known for his version of “Working Man” which has become one of his most requested songs. He’ll be sure to include it at the Jamboree!

Smokey Rose has been entertaining audiences in public and private venues throughout the Ottawa Valley since 1996. With close to 200 songs in their repertoire, they always strive to deliver performances that are customized to each audience. The band offers a unique sound, performing traditional & contemporary country music enjoyed by all who have had the privilege of hearing them.

Johnny Spinks is a local singer/song-writer with his roots in Lanark County. Raised in White Lake, moved to Almonte at a young age, his father was a railroad man, which inspired Johnny’s song and CD “Rust on the Rails”. He is also a huge supporter of the Royal Canadian Legions and has written a song for the Veterans “We Will Remember Them.” His passion for keeping it “classic” country makes his shows a real treat for all ages
