SAVANNAH Songwriters Series continues to host original artists, playing in the round, at in their new home on Tybee.
Lyn Avenue vocalist/guitarist CC Witt has a new addition to her merch table: Down Memory Lane, a solo EP. With southern-lilt vocal clarity, poignant lyricism, and breezy, up-tempo melodies, Witt’s created a collection of downright catchy and lovingly crafted country-pop songs: think Kacey Musgraves and similar pop-country challengers making Hayley Williams-style shapes around words.
An award-winning songwriter, Witt creates immersive worlds with nostalgic imagery on “Down Memory Lane.” As relatable as it is specific, the EP travels all manner of territory, from sweet memories of romance to life in a small town to the darker “R.I.P.”
Markus Kuhlmann makes a lovely kind of Americana with harmonica, guitar, and memorable melodies. If you’ve only caught the multitalented gent drumming for Nightingale News or backing up Jon Waits in Waits & Co., take advantage of this opportunity to see Kuhlmann share his own tunes.
Pete Love has spent time performing with the Denny Phillips Band, Spectrum, Band in the Park, Mary Davis and Co., The Navigators, and Smokin’ Gun. Most recently, you can catch the guitarist performing in Col. Sanders and the Finger Lickers—Love goes all-out for the gigs, dressed in all-white and a bowtie.
Wayne Martin heads down from Burlington, Massachusetts to join in the fun. Expect some wink-nudge humor (his song “I Like Your Caboose” won the 2015 American Songwriters Award in the Comedy/Novelty category) and ruminations on life and love.
Sunday, May 1, doors at 7:30 p.m., show at 8 p.m., $10, all-ages
