Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit


Since his sold-out 2014 concert at the Ships of the Sea Museum in 2014, Jason Isbell has become one of the most celebrated artists in Americana music. A native of northern Alabama, Isbell was a longtime member of the Drive-By Truckers, from whom he departed in 2007 to pursue a solo career. The two-time Grammy Award winner and his mighty band the 400 Unit return to SMF this year to the Morris Park Stage at Trustees Garden. Rolling Stone says: “With his honeysuckle drawl and unrivaled Knack for lyrical detail, Jason Isbell is arguably the most revered roots-rock singer-songwriter of his generation.”

Tedeschi Trucks Band


Since their first gig as a band at the 2010 Savannah Music Festival, the Tedeschi Trucks Band won a Grammy with their debut album, and have toured incessantly with artists ranging from Eric Clapton to Santana. What began as an octet has expanded to an ensemble of twelve musicians who create a singular style created by a joyful family atmosphere. Singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi is known for her powerful and soulful voice, and her husband and musical partner Derek Trucks is established as one of the world’s most distinctive electric guitarists.

Gillian Welch


Acclaimed singer-songwriter Gillian Welch performed at SMF in 2016 as part of the Dave Rawlings Machine. In this return, Welch shares the stage with her musical partner David Rawlings in their classic duo format, performing music that has made them leaders of the Americana music scene since the late 90s. It is not an exaggeration to say that Gillian Welch’s debut album Revival, produced by T Bone Burnett, simultaneously launched her career and an entire musical movement. Now 25-years later, Gillian Welch is described by The New Yorker as “at once innovative and obliquely reminiscent of past rural forms.”

Brent Cobb


Ellaville, Georgia native Brent Cobb has penned songs for Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Kenny Chesney, though his own style is a far cry from contemporary country music. Nashville Scene describes his singing as “soft and sweet, with surefooted hints of soul,” and his original music is influenced by blue-eyed soul, country funk and the swamp boogie sounds that were predominant in popular music in the 1960s and early 1970s.

Mipso


Chapel Hill’s indie Americana quartet Mipso is influenced by the juxtaposition of their progressive home and the surrounding rural southern landscape. Venturing beyond their origins as a stringband, the band’s music is evolving into an area where classic folk-rock and modern alt-country sounds mingle easily with Appalachian tradition. Acoustic Guitar  characterizes Mipso as “hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular.”

Stringband Spectacular


As the culmination of SMF’s annual week-long Acoustic Music Seminar, a group of 16 young string players showcase the fruits of their labor in this production led by mandolinist Mike Marshall and guitarist Julian Lage. The program has contributed to the creation of several touring ensembles, also helping to propel professional careers. As the Savannah Morning News notes, it is “one of the highlights of the festival… There’s a fair chance that a few of the students will headline shows at the SMF itself one day, as they honor and extend America’s great musical traditions.”
