Jim Lauderdale is a two-time GRAMMY-winning singer and master songwriter. He is both a “songwriter’s songwriter,” who’s written/co-written many modern classics for iconic artists, as well as an intuitive sideman, who’s enhanced the music of a bevy of esteemed musicians. As a solo artist, since 1986, he’s created a body work spanning 28 albums of imaginative roots music, encompassing country, bluegrass, soul, R&B and rock. Along the way he’s won awards, garnered critical acclaim, and earned himself an engaged fan base.
Savannah Smith, based out of Asheville, North Carolina, brings her North Mississippi soul to whatever stage she graces. Armed with an uncanny ability to create powerful melodies and lyrics, Savannah captivates audiences with her fiery delivery of well-crafted original material. She was recently named a finalist at the iconic MerleFest Songwriting Contest. Her strong soulful vocals, paired with the melodic backings of some of Asheville’s top musicians, evoke strong emotional responses, wowing audiences with her fiery tunes that have folks out on the dance floor all night.
