An army of musical acts from across the Southeast will once again be descending upon Downtown Mobile. The SouthSounds Music & Arts Festival will return on April 12-14.
Over the past week, participating venues have begun trickling out artist announcements for this musical weekend.
O’Daly’s Irish Pub will bring a little bit of the Big Easy to SouthSounds. On Saturday, April 13, George Porter, Jr. will return to the Azalea City with a batch of funky jams and grooves. Anders Osborne will be making his SouthSounds debut. Osborne’s jamming swamp rock is accented by his stellar guitar work. Cha Wa will also be making its SouthSounds debut. This Grammy nominated “Mardi Gras Indian funk band” is sure to keep the crowd dancing for the entirety of its set.
The Listening Room of Mobile will keep things local for its SouthSounds offerings. Eric Erdman will start the weekend. This local singer-songwriter’s catchy songs has earned praise from critics and fans from Muscle Shoals to Australia. On Saturday, Mobile’s Hannah McFarland will fill this listening room environment with her sweet country sounds. The Nappie Award winning singer-songwriter’s repertoire maintains a traditional country vibe with a modern edge that avoids the ever-present pop country label. Melissa Summersell will end SouthSounds weekend at The Listening Room. This prolific local singer-songwriter just released her two-disc debut “Bare & Fully Dressed.” Summersell’s set will be “traditional, eclectic with a lean towards twang.”
More artist announcements are coming soon.
According to the SouthSounds website, weekend wristbands for performances O’Daly’s and Cedar Street Social Club are $30. Advance day passes are $15, which will increase to $20 the day of the event. Those interested in purchasing day or weekend passes should visit www.southsoundsfest.com
