Bonus Podcast: What’s Wrong with the Annapolis Songwriters Festival?

There’s a lot of noise around town about the September 15-17 grand opening. Annapolis Songwriters Festival. And with anything inaugural, it’s hard to know what to expect. This is where we come in!

We sat down with Kris and Laura of Rams Head Presents (a sister to all the other Rams Head businesses) to find out. And in a nutshell… OMG!!

There’s a lot to digest, but it’s three days long, encompasses venues from Westgate Circle to City Dock, has over 70 (yes 70) free performances, several paid performances and will be an amazing time for music lovers!

Rams Head has the experience as they’ve hosted the famous Key West Songwriters Festival for years, and Annapolis really made a lot of sense. And while there are internationally renowned songwriters coming to town, they haven’t forgotten the wealth of talent here and you can hear local scribes like Skribe (see what I did there ), Jimi Haha, Brandon Hardesty, Ruben Dobbs, and more.

Some of the national names you know include Amos Lee, Jake Owen, Lucinda Williams, Fantastic Negrito, Josh Ritter, James McMurtry, Madison Cunningham and Robert Randolph!

Robert Randolph kicks off the festival with a free event at MC3 on September 15 at 5:00 p.m. featuring Dean Rosenthal, Skribe, Jimi Haha and Honest Lee Soul!

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a venue in downtown Annapolis without live music on these three days – and even on the water with a concert on the Harbor Queen and Songwriters on the Severn!

There’s so much going on. Listen !
