Sandy Roots Songwriters Series kicks off April 18 at Point
Frog Pound at Blue Moon Farm founder Cathe Steele, Vic Saul, Shawn Byrne, Sean Gasaway and Sassafrass will play original music in the round on April 18 in the courtyard at the Point Restaurant on Innerarity Point beginning at 6 p.m.
The concert is part of Nick Biebricher’s Sandy Roots Songwriters Series, a yearlong original music series to be held the third Tuesday of each month. The shows last approximately three hours. There will be a $5 cover.
An open mic night for local original songwriters will follow each showcase. Biebricher said the series will give local singer/songwriters the opportunity to showcase their talents with the best singer/songwriters from around the country.
There are limited slots and writers will need to register in advance for the open mic part of the evening. More information: Sandyrootsmusic@gmail.com or (251) 284-2443. The Point is located at 14340 Innerarity Point Rd.
Pictured: Sassafrass – (Jo Billups and Karen Harvill) – is a locally based acoustic Green rock duo who’ve forged a path and sound all their own. One of the best mostly-under-the- radar singer-songwriter acts in the eco-activist music genre, their driving rhythms
and sparkling harmonies give their original songs, from tongue-in-cheek eco-comedy to hard-biting protest songs and heart-wrenching exposes about endangered animals, an unexpected dynamic presence. The women are serious environmental educators/activists. They’ve played for Greenpeace and WWF in Copenhagen during COP 15, and for 350, Gulf Restoration Network and One Sky, pushing the door open for ecological dialog. Pub and coffeehouse crowds also have found their beautifully performed compositions to be as rousing as love songs, which in essence, they are.
