The Lee County Library has joined with the Americana Community Music Association (ACMA) to offer free acoustic concerts of all original music.
Concerts will take place in the amphitheater which is located in Cornog Plaza at the Fort Myers Regional Library at 2450 First Street in the River District.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair or a blanket. Shows will be moved indoors depending on weather.
Songwriters on the plaza takes place 6 – 7:30 p.m. The series will return on Oct. 12 and continue through May of 2021 on the second Tuesday of each month.
The Oct. 12 show features music by PBR, a collaboration of old friends Peter Golbitz and Ricky Baker Cegelis with the new addition of Bud Michaels on bass.
Bud hails from Michigan where he’s been playing bass since he was 12 years old. Familiar with all genres, he loves the sound of Americana folk-rock.
He fits in nicely with Peter and Ricky’s mix of easy blues, ballads and folk-rock.
Expect a heavy brew of original music with a few choice cover nuggets.
The Nov. 9 event will include Mary Dahl and Carolyn Stanley, Smokey Dayton & The Floridians. Future songwriters on the plaza are Dec 14 with Ray Cerbone, Robert Bidney and Kip Lawrence; Jan 11 with Bruce Gallant, Bill Metts and Houseboat Jim; Feb 8 with the Pearl Street Band; March 8 featuring The Reckless Saints; April 12 with The Obstructionists featuring David Hintz and Ross Jordan; and May 10 will be an ACMA member showcase.
The ACMA is a Fort Myers-based, not for profit that promotes local artists who perform their own original songs. 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. Americana music is a coming together of blues, roots, folk and country.
