For 17 days the Savannah Music Festival offers 100 plus shows of amazing and eclectic music in our fair city. As lead audio engineer and recordist for the festival I am fortunate to witness most all of the artists in one form or another and this year, like previous years had my eyes and ears opened to all manner of new sounds.
Recording the likes of: The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Roby Lakatos, Mike Marshall, Chris Thile, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, The Assad Brothers, Ruthie Foster, Sarah Jaroz, Sierra Noble, Cherryholmes, Shannon Whitworth, Renaud Garcia Fons, Mark O’Connor, Henry Butler, Bill Frisell, Bassekou Kouyate, The Clayton Brothers, Marcus Roberts, Jason Marsalis, Del McCoury and hometown hero Kristina Train was as inspirational as it was exhausting.
Look for many of these shows on Georgia Public Radio and on the Savannah Music Festival website in the upcoming weeks and months.
We’d like to thank everyone at the SMF for trusting us with the location recording duties and being such a pleasure professionally and personally to work with. Congratulations to you all!
