Songwriters on the Plaza resumes Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. This is the return of the ACMA’s popular songwriters showcase on Cornog Plaza at the Fort Myers Regional Library on First Street. This free show will run the second Tuesday of the month through April.
The Lee County Library has joined with the ACMA to offer free acoustic concerts of all original music. Concerts will take place in the amphitheater, which is located on South Cornog Plaza. Bring a chair or a blanket, shows will be moved indoors depending on weather. If needed, the show will be indoor in the South Building that is attached to Talking Books Library. The address is 1651 Lee St., next to the Second Street parking lot.
Come hear great original music and the stories behind the songs in an intimate Songwriters Showcase. Be prepared to enjoy an evening of professional quality acoustic Americana music.
The season kickoff will feature local artists Bill Steel, Bob Williams, Mike McMillan and Clark Johnson.
Bill Steel is a Snowbird from the southernmost part of Canada …Windsor, Ontario. He played in a small band as teenager, dabbled for many years but then came “out” of musical closet after retirement, inspired by singer-songwriters like John Prine, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zant and the many talented members of ACMA.
In the late ‘60s, Bob Williams, a young guitar player from Long Island, NY, began writing his own music. Pulling elements from folk rock and country rock, Bob created a sound all of his own. Always eager to share amusing stories behind the lyrics, Bob’s songs are personal. Irreverent. Funny. Sad. And most importantly, true to his heart. With encouragement from family and friends, he produced and released his first CD No Apologies in 2015. In 2018, he released his second Album, Ain’t Sorry Yet.
Mike McMillan started playing guitar at age 13. He enjoys many different genres which has also influenced his original compositions. Keith has been both a band leader and a sideman and enjoys backing others on guitar and vocals when the opportunity presents itself. Keith also has a passion for writing, co-writing, arranging, recording and performing original music.
Clark Johnson was born in NYC and started his musical pursuits at a very early age. He picked up the bass in 7th grade (Beatles, etc.) and played in blues bands all through college. He also played rock/folk most of the rest of the time. Since moving to Florida, he’s been playing in bluegrass and country bands.
