1st Thursday of the Month at 6:00 p.m.
- Hosted by Pat Crawford
Join us for WUWF's long running live music program, broadcast each month from Historic Pensacola Village. On June 4, host Pat Crawford welcomes songwriters Sally Barris, Alan Rhody, and the Sarah Mac Band. As always, the show begins promptly at 6:00 p.m.
Sally Barris: An A-list Nashville celebrity and veteran songwriter, Sally has had her songs recorded by such top-level artists as Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride, and Lee Ann Womack. While her writing credits easily impress, her thousands of fans and many peers are most captivated by her bright spirit and expressive, crystal clear soprano voice and meticulous guitar playing. Dirty Linen Magazine says, "Barris knows how to write lyrics that are as forthright as a stream of clear water and how to support them with melodies that share that quality." In the last few years, the Minnesota native has performed on Mountain Stage, at the New Bedford Summer Fest, the Wildflower Arts & Music Festival, and The Kerrville Folk Festival. Sally is currently touring and promoting her soon to be released album, "The Road In Me."
Alan Rhody: Louisville, Kentucky native and acclaimed singer-songwriter Alan Rhody began his musical endeavors for the pure love of it while in art college. A couple of years after graduating, while living and working in Canada, Alan landed several network television appearances. After a major publishing firm encouraged him to move to Nashville, he decided to head back south to see what the possibility held. He has been delighting concert audiences across the U.S. and Canada ever since, touring year-round at festivals, theaters, house concerts, folk clubs, songwriter showcases and workshops. To date, Alan has released 8 solo albums. His songs have been recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys, the Atlanta Rhythm Section, George Jones, Tanya Tucker, Michael Martin Murphy, and many others.
Sarah Mac Band: The Sarah Mac Band is made up of Sarah Mac (lead vocals, guitar, keyboard and any other instrument needed), Claire Swindell (bass and vocals), and Charlie Vanture (guitar and vocals). Each of them now call Tallahassee, Florida their home but happily travel the south sharing their love of music. Charlie is the "old guy" of the band with over 20 years on both Claire and Sarah. The three of them joined together in early 2005, aspiring to create original music that blended these unique styles they each brought to the group. What emerged was the Sarah Mac Band, an engaging combination of blues, jazz, and acoustic rock that has been classified as both Americana and Alternative. The band simply describes their unique sound as jazzy-bluesy rock, with a healthy dose of soul.
All RadioLive performances take place at the Museum of Commerce, 205 E. Zarragossa Street in Historic Pensacola Village. Non-perishable food items for the benefit of Manna Food Pantries of NW Florida are accepted at the door in lieu of admission. Map and Directions.
