Today is the last day of the 2023 Savannah Music Festival. The 17-day event, now in its 34th year, took place at a half-dozen venues, both indoor and out, in Savannah’s Historic District. While maybe not as well known outside the Savannah area as some other festivals, all the performances I attended drew large and enthusiastic crowds. The short clips below give you some idea of the diversity of live music that was booked for this festival.

Who knew there were white guys from Alabama who played soul music like this?

  3. A good mix of music you’ve selected for us! I think I like St. Paul and the Broken Bones the most. I’ll look for them on-line. Maggie
