Have you heard who will be performing?
favorite since the start of the 30A Songwriters Festival in 2010 Shawn
Mullins will no doubt have another packed house under his spell.
Shawn's experiences included an indoctrination into the collaborative
creative process by numerous bouts of intensive co-writing, in one
instance putting him atop of the country charts via key contribution to
the Zac Brown Band's "Toes," marking his third #1 single, following
1999's "Lullaby" and the 2006 Triple A/American chart-topper "Beautiful
Wreck." Further co-writing yielded nine of the 11 songs on the new
album, which Mullins believes represents the strongest, most expressive
writing of his distinguished career.
festival favorite since 2010 Amy Ray is the founder of the indie label
Daemon Records, one half of the Indigo Girls, and a solo artist in her
own right. When Amy founded Daemon in 1990, her mission was to support
local musicians, both in putting out their music and teaching them how
to sustain their careers. As a beloved Indigo Girl, Ray has long been
known for her big muscular heart, as a solo artist though; she has
indisputably found her voice.
Gunshot Glitter is a new collaboration of the talented and unique
styles of the sister duo Larkin Poe and the sweet vintage voice of Emily
since Rebbecca and Megan Lovell were little girls they have been awed
by the power of a story well told: from children's books and bedtime
yarns to figments and fairy tales. Now as Larkin Poe they are still on
the search for stories, and striving to learn how to tell them well.
They are on the search for stories of human experience, of love won and
love lost, and of the million mundane things that make up everyday life.
Larkin Poe recently returned from their 2011 Fall European Tour where
they opened for Elvis Costello.
Lynch is a young singer-songwriter hailing from Atlanta, Georgia with
more than just a pretty face. She sings with experience, humility, and a
sweet vintage voice that Truley sets her apart. Her voice has been
compared to that of Allison Krauss, Patty Griffin, and Emmylou Harris.
She is a proficient guitarist and songwriter with an undeniable
endearing and engaging presence and a heart full of song that captivate
Individually these acts are amazing, together they are unforgettable.
Be there and witness their first ever performance as Gunshot Glitter.
