Hootenanny: A Community

Every Friday night in the basement of Java Jack’s a bunch of musicians get together for a “hootenanny.” It’s been going on for three years now, and photographer Tony Nelson decided to capture the event on film. His profiles of the Mad Ripple Hootenanny musicians (including Billy Bragg, above) are on display at The Gallery @ Fox Tax in Minneapolis (yes, they do your taxes AND hang art on the wall). It’s up through July 24th.

If you want to hear what the Java Jack’s hootenanny sounds like, take a listen to a piece MPR’s Chris Roberts did.
