Catch Savannah’s hottest young songwriting talent at Savannah Folk Music Society’s monthly First Friday for Folk Music.
The winners of 2015 Youth Songwriting Contest will perform their original compositions. 1st place winner Hannah Buchman, 2nd place winner Abbey Shoemake, 3rd place winner Hannah Joy Brown, and 4th place winner Miquan Green entered the songwriting contest at the Folk Music Festival; Buchman’s tune, "No Ship Surrendered," awarded her a chance to perform onstage at the festival’s Sunday concert in Grayson Stadium and a $500 gift certificate to Portman’s Music.
Savannah Ceili Band caps off the night. Performing traditional Irish songs and dance music, we all know it’s never too early to get ready for St. Paddy’s, and the Ceili Band is sure to get you in the spirit.
