According to CAA Executive Director and Festival Co-Producer, Jennifer Steele, “The 30A Songwriters Festival is not just the premier songwriters festival; it’s the singular event that brings together thousands of music fans, hundreds of artists and nearly every neighborhood in South Walton to support and celebrate the arts; the energy it generates is unparalleled.
“The festival is also an important part of CAA’s vision to make Walton County a creative place,” she continues. “We are thrilled to be able to welcome artists like Lyle Lovett, Yola, Morgan Wade and the Black Opry Revue to our market for the first time, as well as returning favorites like Rickie Lee Jones, Kathleen Edwards and Steve Earle. 14 is the one you won’t want to miss!
30A debuted in 2010 and has grown to become the largest and most prestigious songwriter festival in the Southeast. In previous years it has hosted the likes of Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Indigo Girls, Graham Nash, Jason Isbell and Lucinda Williams.
