The Honey Gitters long awaited second album, "Poor Gitters' Almanack: Volume 1," is ready for a September release. The first pressings of the 13 track cd will be trucked off to New Mexico with the boys for their second New Mexico tour this year. The Pickamania Bluegrass Festival in Sliver City, NM expanded their weekend to include a Friday night Honey Gitters show at the Buckhorn Opera House on September 9th. "The special invitation to Pickamania to celebrate our new album is an honor," commented Honey Gitters' guitarist Greg Simms. "We are proud of our new album," he added "The Gitters can't wait to share its weird and unique sound with New Mexico."

What is Hoppin' John?

Throughout the coastal South, eating Hoppin' John on New Year's Day is thought to bring a prosperous year filled with luck. The peas are symbolic of coins, and a coin is sometimes added to the pot or left under the dinner bowls. Collard greens, mustard greens, turnip greens, chard, kale etc. along with this dish are supposed to also add to the wealth since they are the color of money. On the day after New Year's Day, leftover "Hoppin' John" is called "Skippin' Jenny," and further demonstrates one's frugality, bringing a hope for an even better chance of prosperity in the New Year. During the late Middle Ages, there was a tradition of eating beans on New Year's Day for good luck in parts of France and Spain. The European tradition mixed with an African food item to become a New World tradition. One tradition common in the Southern USA is that each person at the meal should leave three peas on their plate to assure that the New Year will be filled with Luck, Fortune and Romance.
