Pittonkatonk is music without boundaries. It is a place where the audience and musicians become one. Pittonkatonk is music in a public space that belongs to everyone, with no stage, no doors, and no right way to express yourself.
There is no admission fee, no corporate sponsors, and nothing is for sale. It is a pot-luck event where participants bring food, drink, music, dancing, and the desire to come together to celebrate what music and community really can be.
Pittonkatonk connects local teens and adults with national and local musicians, activists, and educators in order to empower them to use their love of performing music to engage the world around them. Our mission is to promote music performance as a means of achieving positive personal, social, and political outcomes. To achieve this we have designed a series of workshops that engender purposeful music performance on a communal level, blurring the lines between performer and spectator, entertainment and activism.
