The Savannah Songwriters Oct. 13 showcase at Tybee’s American Legion promises to be an eclectic offering of blues, funk and folk.
Two newcomers to the series join hosts and producer Roy Swindelle and Bob Fulton, who returns for his third showcase.
Savannah-resident Jim McGaw has been performing and composing music for over 40 years. His Bluegrass/Jazz/Country crossover group, The New Vinton County Frogwhompers Marching, Singing, Strumming, and Plucking Society were featured in the nationally syndicated PBS series, Hocking Valley Bluegrass, and have been highlighted in Bluegrass Magazine. He plays the six and twelve string guitars, autoharp, hammered and mountain dulcimers and the banjo.
This will be his SSS debut.
As will it be for D.A. York, who offers a lyrical depth that prompts self-reflection, with an instrumental delivery that audiences admire. Born in southern Florida, York currently writes, records and performs in Savannah.
Bob “King B” Fulton has been a performing musician for over forty years, on vocals, guitar, bass, and “blues harp.” Primarily known around Atlanta as the front man for the JumpKings for the past nearly twenty years, performing in clubs, private parties, weddings, festivals, and corporate functions. Bob is also a founding member and a long-time past member of the Board of Directors of the Atlanta Blues Society.
Roy Swindelle is one of the Coastal Empire’s best-known musicians. Roy is a multi-instrumentalist, playing drums, bass, guitar, steel drums and harmonica. Rumor has it that he is taking fiddle lessons. He plays solo, often as Roy and the Circuit Breakers as well as with the Christy Alan Band.
Roy is a producer of the Savannah Songwriters Series, which showcases original music twice monthly – the 2nd Sunday at the Tybee Island American Legion and the 4th Sunday at Johnny Harris. All are free to the public and start at 6 p.m.
