January 17-20, 2020
We are very pleased to announce the initial round of confirmed artists for the 11th Annual 2020 30A Songwriters Festival. Headliners at Grand Boulevard on Saturday, January 18th will feature iconic artists John Prine, Indigo Girls and Tanya Tucker and on Sunday, January 19th, the legendary Brian Wilson, Don McLean and Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone will perform.
Brian Wilson will perform with his heralded 9 piece band and recreate his most beloved and sophisticated productions (including early Beach Boys’ hits “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Fun Fun Fun,” “Warmth of the Sun,” and Pet Sounds classics “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” “Good Vibrations”) live at Grand Boulevard.
Indigo Girls have just completed their new studio album entitled Look Long, recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studio in the UK. Produced by John Reynolds and scheduled for release early 2020, they will introduce new songs from the much anticipated album at 30A in January.
John Prine and his band return to 30A by popular demand. The revered songwriter’s past year was highlighted by his highly acclaimed triple Grammy nominated album The Tree of Forgiveness, from which he will perform songs as well as classics like “Sam Stone,” “Angel from Montgomery,” and “Spanish Pipedream.”
Tanya Tucker will showcase new songs from her acclaimed new album While I’m Livin (produced by Shooter Jennings and Brandi Carlile) and will sing “Delta Dawn” and other classic hits.
On the headline stage Sunday, Don McLean will perform hits spanning three decades. The RIAA and the National Endowment of the Arts named “American Pie” a top 5 song of the century with “Over the Rainbow”, “This Land is Your Land”, “Respect” and “White Christmas.”
Hailing from Manchester England, Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone distinguished himself as the youngest musician of the British Invasion to break big in the U.S. His legacy – eight gold singles, fifty-two million records sold, hundreds of TV appearances and a Broadway play.
