AWARD-winning folk singer Linda McRae leads the latest group of songwriters to take on Savannah Songwriters Series at Johnny Harris Restaurant.
In her time with Celtic folk rock band Spirit of the West, McRae earned two platinum and three gold records. After her success with the group, McRae blazed her own trail, capturing her sound on electric and acoustic guitars, accordion, and banjo. The versatile McRae is a true modern folkie, having performed in venues as diverse as Memphis’s famous Orpheum Theatre and New Folsom Prison, playing with the inmate blues band.
Todd Hoke returns to the Sunday of song with his signature rootsy blues-folk. A native Texan, Hoke currently resides in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
A key player in the early success of Savannah Songwriters Series, Jefferson Ross played and wrote in Nashville before moving to Savannah in 2010. While he now resides in Atlanta, where he pursues his love of painting, he still performs his original songs at house shows and festivals in the Southeast.
Savannah Folk Music Society president Chris Desa joins in the fun. With the array of influences Desa is surrounded by in the fantastic Folk Music Society, it will be a treat to hear his original work.
