A major life change brought him and his wife and five children to Tybee Island 4 ½ years ago and with the vibrant Savannah music scene surrounding him, the bug bit again. He decided to try his hand at a new instrument and dusted off the mandolin given to him by his wife’s grandfather nearly a quarter of a century earlier. After a year of playing solo gigs and hosting two open mic nights on Tybee, he decided to form a band that has become In For A Penny.

This is Sean’s first SSS showcase.

Cc’s songs are composed of a unique blend of select genres, with her main influence being country music.
