Aaron Paul Zimmer followed by Seldom Sober

Tonight’s performance features two acts: Act 1) Aaron Paul Zimmer, a Savannah based singer, songwriter, guitarist and harmonica player. Zimmer’s solo material and shows rely heavily on lyric centric folk compositions that weave beautiful storytelling and autobiographical narrative with intricate melodies. Act 2) Seldom Sober, the duo composed of Michael Corbett (guitar) and Colleen Settle (fiddler). While Seldom Sober is rooted in Irish music, their song list ranges from Pete Seger to the Beatles to their take on contemporary songs. Alcohol free, non-smoking, friendly listening venue, secular event.

Our socially close and aerobic contra dances must remain canceled due to continued efforts to defeat the spread of Covid-19.  We continue to invite  you to dance as if no one is watching.

Who We Are
We are a society of music makers, appreciative listeners, and dancers.
We provide year-round, affordable access to acoustic music and dance, benefiting the greater Savannah community.
We define “Folk Music” broadly,
ranging from blues to bluegrass, from world music to country, from traditional to contemporary, from front porches to modern stages.
It’s “Roots Music”: playful, relaxing, thought-provoking and down-to-earth.
Some tunes are centuries old, others written yesterday. It’s acoustic, and often fun to sing along with, or to dance to.
