2012 Savannah Music Festival

The citizens of Savannah are already looking ahead to the 2012 Savannah Music Festival, which will run March 22 through April 7 at various sites across Savannah.

An exciting lineup is planned this year: Lyle Lovett, Pink Martini, The Head and the Heart, Justin Townes Earle, Acollective…. These are just a few of the performers scheduled for the 2012 Savannah Music Festival. Musicians are coming from Seattle, Tel-Aviv, Athens, Georgia, and elsewhere around the globe.

Genres include Baroque, Classical, Bluegrass, Rock, Salsa, World, Flamenco, Funk, Cajun, Caberet, Old-Time, Country, and so on, and so on, and so on. Featured instruments include the clarinet, mandolin, trumpet, harmonica, lap steel, organ, and accordion. We’ll be stomping our feet and clapping our hands for two weeks.

There are worse ways to spend a couple of weeks, but you’d be hard pressed to find a better way. Come to the Savannah Music Festival. Stay at one of our Savannah Vacation Rentals while you’re here.

The 2011 Savannah Music Festival

Savannah is gearing up for the 22nd Annual Savannah Music Festival, which runs March 24 through April 9, 2011. Music infuses Savannah during this city-wide event; musicians travel from all over the world to participate in the “cross-genre” program, and fans travel from all over the world to listen. It has been hailed as one of the most important events of its kind in papers from London to Munich.

Guests of our Savannah Vacation Rentals may find themselves at one-time-only events such as the following:

  • African Interplay: Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal / Lionel Loueke Ensemble – a unique blend of African music made with Western instruments.
  • Slave Shout Songs from the Georgia Coast, by the McIntosh County Shouters.
  • Giants of Texas Country: bringing together The Flatlanders and Junior Brown.

Indeed, few music festivals assemble such a diverse bill. It’s possible to hear classical pianists, blues guitarists, and folk rock bands during the Savannah Music Festival. Throw in a Zydeco Dance Party, a Bluegrass icon, and some Chamber Music, and you’re beginning to get an idea of what awaits.

The Savannah Music Festival runs for 17 days in 13 venues. Each day holds more than one option, so you’re always sure to find some music you like. Whether you are already planning to stay in one of our Savannah Vacation Rentals during the weekend, or considering traveling to Savannah during the week, you’ll be pleased you came for this great event.
