Three of the best performing songwriters in the world are coming to Amelia Island!
WHAT: “An Evening of Story & Song” with THE WAYMORES, three of the best performing songwriters in the world! Together, The Waymores dish up a dash of The Wilburys, a splash of Alison Krauss, and a sprinkle of Beatles – a delicious blend of contemporary folk, retro pop and old school country that is both unique and familiar.
WHEN: Saturday, April 9th at 8 pm
WHERE: Burns Hall at St. Peter’s Episcopal Parish, corner of 9th St. and Atlantic Avenuje, in historic, downtown Fernandina Beach.
WHO: Grammy Award winner DON HENRY’s songs have been recorded by Ray Charles, Patti Page, Conway Twitty, Kathy Mattea and dozens of other great artists… but they shine brightest when sung by the artist who wrote them. Long appreciated as one of Nashville’s finest singer-songwriters, Don is revered by fans, critics and peers alike for being one of the most inspiring, entertaining and funny artists you are ever likely to see and hear.
Whether in her own hands or those of hit artists like Martina McBride or Lee Ann Womack, SALLY BARRIS’s music makes an indelible impression. And while her writing credits mightily impress—her songs have been covered by Trisha Yearwood & Keith Urban, John Michael Montgomery, Kathy Mattea and many others—fans and peers are most captivated by her bright spirit and high mountain soprano.
TOM KIMMEL’s business card facetiously reads Overnight Success, but the truth is far from it. After graduating college he worked as a short order cook, bus boy, taxi driver, chef, shipping clerk, lab technician, janitor, waiter, bartender and window washer on his way to establishing himself as an award winning songwriter (Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt, Joe Cocker, Randy Travis and a host of others) and critically acclaimed performing artist (seven albums).
DETAILS: $15.00 tickets are available at the door from 7:15 pm on; show begins at 8 pm. For more information, contact series hosts Mark & Donna Paz Kaufman at 277-2664.
