The Savannah Songwriters Series stages in-the-round showcases the 1st Sunday of each month at the Tybee Post Theater.
The format is four songwriters in-the-round, taking turns, each playing five originals songs. It’s all acoustic.
All shows begin promptly at 7. They usually end before 9. Tickets are $10. All ages are welcome.
If you are interested in playing, we encourage you to attend one of the shows. There’s a booking form on this website, but we really encourage you to come to at least one of the shows.
We pay a minimum of $50 per songwriter and of course songwriters are welcome to sell CDs and other merchandise.
The Savannah Songwriters Series was created by social media manager, Tami Ross, and Southern songwriters, Stan Ray and Jefferson Ross in the fall of 2010. Local songwriters Thomas Oliver and Roy Swindelle became responsible for booking the shows in 2011. The SSS moved to Johnny Harris Restaurant in January of 2012. And to the Post in April 2016.
Thomas is now primarily responsible for booking the songwriters and organizing the showcases. Tom Cooler, another local songwriter, is our soundman and records the shows. David Westbrook assists him. Don Tueton is our unofficial photographer.
SSS was created to highlight original music, with an emphasis on local songwriters, though we occasionally book touring songwriters.
