Over the past 10 years, Seth Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered modern roots artists in the United States; a three-dimensional talent comprised by a gift for combining melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice with a true blue knack for getting around on the guitar. His latest studio album, Gotta Get Back, produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers, is yet another masterwork that further expands upon this reputation.
He's released seven albums between 1997 and 2015 and is consistently touring at venues and festivals around the world. Along with headline shows, he's been invited to open for The Mavericks, The Wood Brothers, Raul Malo, Paul Thorn and Ruthie Foster, among others.
Perhaps Country Standard Time said it best: “If you subscribe to the Big Tent theory of Americana, then Seth Walker –with his blend of blues, gospel, pop, R&B, rock, and a dash country—just might be your poster boy.”

It’s Christmas Eve in 1945, and only a handful of WVL Radio’s actors have braved the blizzard to perform that evening’s broadcast of It’s a Wonderful Life and keep the station afloat. This clever stage adaptation breathes new life into the poignant story of George Bailey and Bedford Falls.
When Frank Capra and his co-writers were working on the original screenplay of It’s a Wonderful Life, the Great Depression was a vivid memory. The story of George Bailey and Bedford Falls is juxtaposed against a time of failing banks, devastatingly high unemployment and a shortage of affordable housing. The circumstances are eerily familiar, and over 60 years later, this story remains as fresh and relevant as ever. Its message of hope and optimism is the perfect antidote to holiday cynicism.
The four-member stage company masterfully conquers multiple characters and sound effects, while saving their radio station from a winter blizzard’s doom. A heartwarming, uplifting gift for audiences of all ages

This special acoustic duo show features two Nashville stars, one a legend who has played with both Sawyer Brown and now tours with Confederate Railroad, and the other a hot up and comer.
Bobby Randall was a founding member for Sawyer Brown, playing guitar and singing on all their early hits. Randall has spent the last six years as a member of the outlaw country band Confederate Railroad. He has written songs for the Marshall Tucker band, Reba McEntire, Sawyer Brown and many other top artists. Randall also has quite an extensive television resume hosting programs on The Nashville Network and Fox Sports Net.

Marie, MI., as the only female artist in a “tribute to the Grand Ole Opry” show.

Acclaimed singer-songwriter, Malcolm Holcombe, whose "heartfelt baritone" (NPR) delivers "haunted country, acoustic blues, and rugged folk" (Rolling Stone), headlines this extraordinary acoustic Americana concert, which opens with Savannah’s Jason Bible.
Born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC, Holcombe is highly regarded by contemporaries in Americana music, including Emmylou Harris, Wilco, Steve Earle, and Lucinda Williams. An emotionally captivating performer, Holcombe has shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Richard Thompson, John Hammond, Leon Russell, Wilco, Shelby Lynne, Cat Power, and Ray Wylie Hubbard.
He released his 15th studio album, Pretty Little Troubles, this year. Produced by Darrell Scott and Brian Brinkerhoff, Pretty Little Troubles features Holcombe's rasping vocals and bright, percussive guitar accentuating his insightful lyrics. "Malcolm Holcombe is an artist of deep mystery and high art - he is who I listen to, and have for over 20 years - this record goes on my list of "working with my heroes" - all the goods that in value in songs and artistry are in Malcolm...the real deal."- Darrell Scott

Since 2002, Abbey Road LIVE! has been rocking the music of The Beatles. Initially a tribute to the monumental "Abbey Road" album, the band has expanded its repertoire to include more than 150 Beatles tunes, from all eras of the Fab Four's career.
This is not your typical Beatle look-alike tribute act; don't expect mop-top haircuts and fake British accents. Rather, an Abbey Road LIVE! show is about bringing to life some of the more mature and complex Beatles material in a raw and spirited fashion, while remaining true to the original recordings. Combining attention to detail with a creative exuberance, the band always delights its audiences with its diverse repertoire of hits and more obscure favorites.

This is a jazz concert by Savannah’s most charismatic and soulful blues-rock singer, who has just released her first album.

Beginning in 1994, two iconic legends of Rock n’ Roll began a historic series of 200 shows that would thrill hundreds of thousands of concert goers all over the U.S. and around the world. Coming this Labor Day Weekend, two of the country’s best Billy Joel and Elton John tribute artists will join forces to recreate this amazing show at the Tybee Post Theater.
Elton John and Billy Joel called their show Face to Face, and together they made themselves the longest running and most successful concert tandem in pop music history. During these shows, the two played their own songs, each other's songs and performed duets together.
It was pure luck that last year Bill Connors (aka Elton) and Hugh Tyner (aka Billy) found each other, and each with his own successful tribute career, decided to come together to form their own version of the Face-to-Face Show. Bill has played all over the country and on cruise ships as Elton for decades. Hugh has had a successful career playing all over the world, and was a regular on the Vegas strip for 18 years. His band Almost Billy Joel and the Allentown Band played to a sold-out house at the Post last year.
This two-hour spectacular recreation of the Face-to-Face show is accompanied by a full 6-piece live band. Just a few hits you can expect to hear include, of course, “Just the Way You Are,” “Crocodile Rock,” and “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” to “My Life,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” and “New York State of Mind,” and many more.
Saturday, Sept. 2, 8 pm. Tickets $25 Reserved seating, $30 premium seats.
It’s a boot stomp on a dusty bar floor. It’s the clang of a whiskey bottle at last call. It's grit. It's the sounds of the South. It's Cranford Hollow, a blended mix of Southern Rock, Appalachian Fiddle Music and American Rock and Roll.
The Hilton Head Island five piece, comprised of vocalist and guitarist John Cranford, bass man Phillip Sirmans, drummer Randy Rockalotta, electric guitarist Yannie Reynecke, and fiddler and vocalist Eric Reid, have won over thousands of loyal fans with what they call Lowcountry Stomp, a sound that is at once eclectic but uniquely their own. Elements of Blues, Old-Time Country, and Southern Psychedelic Rock come together with ancient mountain melodies in an energetic, engaging musical root bag sprinkled with some Sea Island hoodoo.
Since 2011 Cranford Hollow has been playing upwards of 200 shows a year, steadily expanding from the South Carolina Lowcountry through the South to such regions as, the Gulf coast, Midwest, Rocky Mountains and the Great Lakes.

We’re bring two soon-to-be-country superstars to the stage this month.
First up is Abe Partridge from Mobile, Ala. You will be saying you remember him when. He has appeared at the Post in our Savannah Songwriters Series. He’s a former Baptist preacher, Iraq war veteran and now, a lauded singer-songwriter. One reviewer said recently, "I can count on one hand how many live performances I have seen that gripped me, shook me up, and rattled me to the core. Abe Partridge is among them. His astonishing songwriting combined with his shocking performance will haunt you, and his studio recordings equally as strong! His alt-country album, “White Trash Lipstick” was recorded in Nashville,
Following Abe is another veteran of our stage. Kris Youmans, winner of the 2016 Georgia Country Awards for Traditional Artist. Youmans’ songwriting style is strongly Roots influenced, and traditional and southern as her hometown of Savannah. Her mighty band, now based in Newnan, including Barefoot Slim on Steel Guitar, David Puett on Guitar, Patrick Thompson Bass and Jerry Lee Percussion, help to achieve that high and lonesome sound which is the signature to their shows.

Olney’s music has been prominently featured in ABC-TV’s “Nashville” and his intelligent songs have been recorded by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Tim O’Brien, Front Country, Slaid Cleaves and Steve Young, among many others.

“…While music is a subjective thing, it’s almost a certainty that everyone who gives [David] Olney a listen comes away a fan of the man’s ability to turn a phrase.” (The Daily Times - Knoxville, TN)
