Headliners Announced for 10th Annual 30A Songwriter’s Festival 2019

Jason Isbell

More than 175 renowned singer-songwriters are coming together for the 10th annual 30A Songwriters Festival held January 18-21, 2019. Headliners for the 2019 festival, held annually during Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend, are Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlisle and Felix Cavaliere’s The Rascals.

Evening performers throughout the weekend include Patty Griffin, Steve Earle, Gregory Alan Isakov, Suzy Bogguss, Amanda Shires, Shawn Mullins, Livingston Taylor, John Fullbright, The Secret Sisters, Robyn Hitchcock, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Chely Wright, The War And Treaty, Radney Foster and many more! There will be 225 performances over the weekend at up to 25 venues along the Scenic 30A corridor.

American singer-songwriter, guitarist, and four time Grammy Award winner, Jason Isbell is best known for his solo career and work with the band The 400 Unit.

As with Isbell’s 2013 breakthrough, Southeastern, and his double-Grammy-winning follow up, 2015’s Something More Than Free, his most current album, The Nashville Sound was produced by Dave Cobb. The album was well received, winning two Grammy awards for Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Song (“24 Frames”). In May of 2016, Isbell was nominated for three more Americana Music Honors & Awards: Album of the Year (Something More Than Free), Song of the Year (“24 Frames”), and Artist of the Year. He ended up winning Album and Song of the Year. In 2018 he swept the awards winning Album of the Year, Duo/Group of the Year and Song of the Year.

Brandi Carlile is currently celebrating her breakthrough new album, By The Way, I Forgive You, which debuted earlier this year at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Current Albums chart, Rock Albums chart and Americana/Folk Albums chart and Number 5 on the Billboard 200 chart—a career high for the Seattle-based singer-songwriter.

For legendary singer songwriter, Felix Cavaliere, making people feel good is primary to his illustrious 50-year career that includes the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriter Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and Grammy Hall of Fame.

Few artists can claim they defined a generation like The Rascals.
