The Americana Community Music Association keeps the music going in the new year with several shows at their listening room in Fort Myers.
The February schedule includes Sam Robbins on Feb. 3, Muriel Anderson on Feb. 18 and A Tale of Two on Feb. 24.
Sam Robbins is often described as an “old soul singer songwriter.” A Nashville based musician whose music evokes classic ‘70s singer songwriters like James Taylor and Neil Young, Sam adds a modern, upbeat edge to the storyteller troubadour persona.
An avid performer, he has gained recognition from extensive touring and as one of the six 2021 winners in the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk competition, one of the largest and most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country.
ACMA member, singer/songwriter and board member Bob Williams will open for Sam Robbins.

Muriel Anderson

The ACMA will host a Sunday evening concert featuring Muriel Anderson on Feb. 18. Guitarist, harp guitarist and composer Muriel Anderson embraces music from all over the world with a sense of grace, joy, and gentle humor. If you’re not already familiar with Muriel, you will find yourself smiling when you feel the joy of her music shining through a stunning array of styles.
Her CD, Nightlight Daylight, was chosen as one of the top 10 CDs of the decade by Guitar Player Magazine, and her “Acoustic Chef” is a CD of music from around the world with a cookbook of recipes and stories to go with each tune. Her “Heartstrings” recording accompanied the astronauts on the space shuttle. Muriel is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship.
ACMA member Ray Cerbone is the perfect opener for the Feb. 18 show.

A Tale of Two

Following their Bluebird Cafe debut, Nashville based A Tale Of Two is an undeniable rising duo in today’s roots music scene. Combining the best of Americana and blues melodies with timeless Southern storytelling, award winning vocalist Stephanie Adlington and guitarist Aaron Lessard draw influence from the likes of Tom Waits and Ray LaMontagne, along with bedrock artists such as Patsy Cline and Hank Williams Sr.
Not unlike the artists who inspired them, the duo’s songs frequently dabble in stories of revenge, drinking and feature sinners of all stripes and persuasions.
ACMA member and singer/songwriter Fred Ball opens Feb. 24.
Doors open at 6:30 pm. for most listening room shows.
