Ben Sollee, a soulful singer-songwriter from Kentucky played last night in Savannah. Apart from his infectious smile, thoughtful lyrics and unusual choice of instrument (cello, both picking and bow), what makes him particularly interesting is the fact that he has been touring the coastal southeast over the last week by bicycle. What’s more, Ben and friends are following our provisional Greenway route!
If you did not catch him in Savannah, you have two more chances before Ben and his bandmates head back to KY:
First, tomorrow, they will be performing a show on the Cumberland Sound Ferry operated by our friends at Amelia River Cruises, leaving from the St. Marys waterfront at 2:30pm. $5 of the $15 round trip ticket goes to Oxfam America’s programs to fight poverty. He’s also playing at Jack Rabbit’s in Jacksonville on Sunday, Dec 13. Many thanks to Terry Landreth of our board and owner of Camden Bicycle Center for his help as they come into St. Marys tomorrow.
This is one you won’t want to miss.
