Library system, ACMA to host singer-songwriter events
The Lee County Library System will partner with the Americana Music Association to offer free singer-songwriter events for the community.
The ACMA is a Fort Myers-based nonprofit that promotes local artists who write and perform. The community performances will showcase their talent and provide the audience with the stories behind the songs in an intimate showcase, which serves to compliment the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest.
On Sept. 21, the Captiva Memorial Library will host the following musicians starting at 2 p.m.:
– Bill Metts has been influenced by the music of Taj Mahall, Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and others. Metts’ original songs are down home finger-picking style.
– Bruce Gallant has written songs for more than 30 years. His songs are a reflection of his life experiences.
– David Hintz writes from his heart. His performance is sure to be a direct line to yours.
In addition, the Fort Myers Regional Library’s outdoor amphitheater on Cornog Plaza will feature musicians on Sept. 27 starting at 5 p.m., along with free monthly music performances on the second Tuesday of each month from 6 to 7:30 p.m. beginning in November and running up through April.
Registration is not required; bring a blanket or chairs to enjoy the performances.
