2021 Sunset Series dates and lineup:
September 2 Paw Paws Medicine Cabinet
Paw Paws Medicine Cabinet is an Indie Southern rock band based out of Mobile, AL. Formed in 2015, the band began writing music of their own. After several performances along the Gulf Coast, the appetite for Paw Paws Medicine Cabinets original material grew. Paw Paws Medicine Cabinet has played festival stages alongside artists such as Counting Crows, Wet Willie, and The Marcus King Band.
September 9 Ever More Nest
Ever More Nest is a new music project from New Orleans-based songwriter Kelcy Mae. Kelcy has adopted a full-fledged Americana style that has drawn comparisons to Gregory Alan Isakov, Gillian Welch, and Nanci Griffith. Kelcys oft-lauded poeticism remains a calling card of her songs.
September 16 Early James
Early James is a combination of roots, rock, the lonesomeness of the blues and tongue, and the cheek of classic country. James voice conjures a centurys worth of American barkers and crooners, from Alan Lomax field recordings to mid-century iconoclasts like Billy Holliday and Howlin Wolf to ghostly late-century interpreters like Fiona Apple and Tom Waits.
September 23 The Talismen
The Talismen formed in 2015 in Montgomery, AL. These talented musicians have been learning and growing as they entertain audiences all over the Southeast. The Talismen put on a show containing soulful and funk-filled originals along with some music of their favorite artists from across the jam, rock, and funk spectrum.
September 30 Songwriters Showcase
The Songwriters Showcase will be a preview to the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival. The night will kick off with the Krickets and will be followed by three Nashville hit songwriters: Jon Nite, J.T. Harding, and Lindsay Rimes.
The Sunset Series concerts are free to the public. Food trucks will be set up for those wishing to purchase food, and the Alabama Coastal Business Chamber will be present selling soft drinks and beer.
