Hearts Bluff Music Sponsors Boathouse Stage at 2014 30A Songwriters Festival Share Thisi
For the third year in a row, Hearts Bluff Music sponsored The BoatHouse stage for the 30A Songwriters Festival. The event showcased 150+ songwriters over the course of 3 days throughout 23 venues along the famous beachside highway in the Florida panhandle.
With several shows daily at each venue, the festival creates a golden opportunity for fellow writers to meet, mingle, & appreciate one another’s music.
The BoatHouse stage has become a favorite spot among festival attendees looking for an intimate writers round. This year, Parker & Parker hosted 2 rounds at The BoatHouse, playing alongside David Olney (songs recorded by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and featured on ABC’s “Nashville”), Webb Wilder (singer/songwriter/actor and guitarist who was recently inducted into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame), Sergio Webb (Nashville-based songwriter and guitarist recently named to Alternate Root’s “Top 21 Roots Guitar Players”), Steve Bogard (former NSAI president who has penned nine #1 songs), Buzz Cason (legendary rocker and co-writer on Hearts Bluff classic “Everlasting Love”), and Phil Madeira (singer/songwriter/producer/musician, with cuts by Emmylou Harris, The Civil Wars, Keb’ Mo’, Garth Brooks, and many more).
Following one of Parker & Parker’s rounds, Craig Fuller invited Caryl onstage for vocal accompaniment on the Pure Prairie League smash hit “Amie,” which Fuller’s voice originally made famous in 1975.
When Scott & Caryl weren’t onstage, they joined the rest of the Hearts Bluff team in the audience at other incredible shows throughout the festival. Among the many highlights were performances by Shawn Mullins, Kristian Bush, JT Harding, Ellis Paul, Jim Lauderdale, John Oates, and Robert Randolph & The Family Band.
