First Fridays
The next scheduled FIRST FRIDAY for Folk Music will be held at Stewart Hall, First Presbyterian Church 520 Washington Avenue, Savannah GA on 3rd January 2014.  Festivities start at 7.30pm and run till about 10:00 pm. It is a smoke free, alcohol free and family friendly evening of music in a coffee house setting, regularly attended by an appreciative audience of folk music enthusiasts from the greater Savannah and surrounding area. There is a suggested minimum donation of $ 5/- to help support the event and other SFMS activities.This month’s show features “NICK SHELTON” and “CYNERGY”.

Your host for the evening will be CHRIS DESA.

With Nick Shelton's music, there's a strong argument that being able to tell a story about your life in unflinching honesty outshines nearly-failed middle school music classes. In his live set, Nick's warm, unforced stage presence lends itself brilliantly to his songs. It's as if his voice is an audible photo of the West Virginia coal town where he was born and raised. While hovering in the stylistic territory of John Prine, Bob Dylan and Elliott Smith, Nick has found his own distinctly dusty musical road to travel and leaves his signature on the walls of the figurative rest stops along the way. Aiden Malecky will join Nick as he makes his First Friday debut.

Long time SFMS members Bob and Judy Williams, with their son Zach (Moose) are “CYNERGY”. 

 The music of CYNERGY is "unplugged" and eclectic. Traditional Celtic and American music provided the initial focus of the group's efforts, the love of a wide range of music combined with the talents of the members allows them to perform a variety of music including traditional instrumentals, old time music, a touch of country & western, and soft (folk) rock from the 70's and 80's. 

Bob also plays hammer dulcimer, harmonica and mandolin, with Judy occasionally using a bodhran and other percussion gizmos when she is not playing guitar.

Please come and enjoy an evening of great folk music on 3rd January 2014
