The incredible eighth annual 30A Songwriters Festival is coming to a close, but The 30A Company team fanned out all week to bring you the best coverage, including video highlights, exclusive interviews, photos and much more.
This year, the festival kicked it up a notch, with some high-octane performances from headliners Cheap Trick, Dr. John, Driving N Cryin and John Prine. But the real magic happened in the small venues where songwriters often performed together for the very first time.
If you missed out on the festivities, The 30A Company is hosting a FREE official Late Checkout Party on Monday, January 16th at The Bay and Borago from 11am until 3pm. This annual event celebrates our volunteers, festival goers who are sticking around for “just one more day,” and our locals who were working hard this weekend and didn’t get a chance to check out the performances. Here’s today’s schedule:
