Beehive Field Recordings

We have a big gray van, a high quality and fully remote audio / video rig and we love to travel! We can pop-up our “studio” in a house, a theatre, a front porch, or on-site at a festival to capture our series of Field-Recordings. We love to find unique and creative people in places where roots music is a part of every day life. Think of us as a modern day Lomax.

    The Pewter Sessions are performances captured live in front of a small audience at both the Winter and Summer Hoot at the Ashokan Center in New York State. The sessions are held in a 100-year-old pewter shop that now serves as a cozy side-venue during the festival. The intimate nature of the space creates a special atmosphere for audience members and performers alike. Beehive Productions has been capturing these live performances since the 2015 Winter Hoot. Below are some memorable sets.
