The Fernandina Beach Songwriter Festival is a new event being organized by three friends already immersed in the music industry but each bringing different perspectives. The Festival will feature 12-renowned songwriters, considered some of the best in the business. The songwriters will perform their hit songs and tell the history and stories of the songs.
Fernandina Beach Songwriter Festival is founded and organized by Tammy Rogers King, Sean McCarthy and Alexandra Maddox. All three have experience in the music industry and event organization. The Festival will officially kick off Friday April 14. The artists will each be playing two – 2-hour performances. Venues will be providing local music acts between the scheduled performances to keep attendees entertained. There is an option for two private ticketed events featuring multiple artists in a small, intimate setting. Special guest artists will also be sitting in. This show will allow an even more up close and very personal experience with the songwriters. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to meet the artists, have autographs and photos taken and hear personal stories directly from the songwriters themselves. Friday night will also feature a special concert by the Sean McCarthy Band at the Green Turtle.
On Saturday April 15th, the artists will play two 2-hour performances. There will be two ticketed events held Saturday evening. Saturday night will end with the Green Turtle hosting the up-and-coming Nashville band Troubadour Blue.
Sunday April 16, the Festival will officially close. The final event will be a ticketed event on the Amelia River Cruise boat the Bald Eagle. This special show will take place on a two-hour boat cruise that will take passengers to Cumberland Island to hopefully see the wild horses while listening to the show. A limited number of tickets will be sold. This will be another interactive event with the songwriters and special guests artists also sitting in.
