    30A Songwriters Festival recently announced that Jackson Browne will headline the 2016 30A Songwriters Festival which takes place on January 15th-17th. Playing guitar and piano, Jackson will perform songs from his entire body of work.

    Jackson Browne has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics. He was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007.

    As it leaves 30A shouldn't it lose the 30A title?

    I haven't seen the schedule but assuming most of the venues remain on Scenic 30A but with some shows going a little north, which I think is the right thing to do - to involve any good venue in the SoWal community.

    Well the website needs some updating as two of the venues don't exist anymore.

    Then shouldn't it become the SoWal Songwriters Festival?

    The website has a lot of updates to make. The lineup isn't final and venues won't be final for a little while at least. Let's keep "SoWal" weird.

    Confusion about venues and artists? The tradition continues...

    The 30A Songwriters Festival is huge. I'm always amazed at how it's pulled together and runs so well, overall - though some people don't get in to see the shows they really want to see due to crowds at certain venues/times. It's one of those things you have to figure out "how to do". Tips for relaxing and enjoying the music all weekend long? It's through experience but also having the right attitude.
