MUSICFILE PRODUCTIONS has announced its Revival Fest lineup, and all we Georgians can say is, DANG!

Kayne Lanahan and company may specialize in the new and hot, but this year's Revival Fest is a great look into fresh Southeastern talent, acts that have dazzled Savannah in the past, and sensational, All-American artists with a few years under their belts.

Most noteworthy? The gang's nabbed the wonderful indie-folk band Fruit Bats to headline. Their fest date is a part of a quietly announced reunion tour, with singer-songwriter Eric D. Johnson back on board with his typically rotating cast.

The band dissolved in 2013 with a statement from Johnson citing "no major or dramatic reason" for the breakup; it's good to see them back on the circuit.

Stopover fave Southern Culture On the Skids return, as well as Those Darlins, Christopher Paul Stelling, and Margo & The Pricetags.

The day-long festivities will take place Saturday, September 12, in the idyllic sprawl of the Georgia State Railroad Museum. A celebration of music, Southern eats, bourbon and local brews, advanced tickets are available now via Ticketfly.

    Flown in from Haiti especially for this one show, the band delivered an intensely rhythmic and deeply soulful performance which shook the rafters at the Morris Center.

  • Savannah Music Festival Review: BalletCollective

    The genius of BalletCollective is in combining the things that make ballet like no other art form – the ultra-high level of physical fitness and the elongated aesthetic line of the classic en pointe dancer – with the compelling emotion and essential informality of modern/contemporary dance.

    It’s easy to see why the Ukrainian quartet were inspired to conceptualize music for this hypnotically compelling film in their return to the Savannah Music Festival.
