The Americana Community Music Association (ACMA) and the Alliance for the Arts will hold a Songwriters in the Round on Sunday, March 17 at 5 p.m.
Organizers decided to repeat last year’s show featuring Country Music Hall Of Famer Charlie McCoy with Roy Schneider and Kim Mayfield.
Any musician in Nashville has heard of Charlie McCoy. A mainstay in Music City since the 1960s, Charlie has played on dozens of hit records, including work with such legends as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Simon and Garfunkel, George Jones, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and many more. The solo work of this Country Music Hall of Fame member is contained on more than three dozen albums that Charlie has released over the past four decades.
Reckless Saints founder Roy Schneider was 16 and in hiding when a friend loaned him a guitar. He had just broken out of a Straight, Inc. facility after a horrific year-long incarceration, where he had been denied the right to play an instrument or even listen to music. Having access to a guitar again – as well as the support of good friends – helped him survive while he waited to turn 18, and begin his lifelong love affair with making music. Schneider went on to pursue visual arts, learning how to design toys in 3D, and writing and drawing syndicated comic strip “The Humble Stumble” through United Media. Kim is better known as half of the Americana duo Roy Schneider & Kim Mayfield (now called Reckless Saints.) Reviewers have described her music as “pearly and sashaying,” “pleasantly invoking the legendary Tammy Wynette,” and “haunted by Patsy Cline.” Mayfield’s song, Ring Around the Moon, made her a semi-finalist in the 2019 International Songwriting Competition.
Tickets are $15 for Alliance members and $16 for non-members. For tickets and more information, visit www.artinlee.org or call 239-939-2787. The Alliance is located at 10091 McGregor Blvd. in Fort Myers.
