Several Grammy Award winners, including the incomparable Rodney Crowell and the legendary J.D. Souther, are featured in a new live music series coming to Pascagoula this Fall.
Grand Magnolia Music takes place in Jimmy Buffett’s hometown, beginning the second week of October. In addition to several shows in the Fall Series, the shows will continue after the first of the year with several more shows for the Spring Series. All of the shows will have a connection in some form or fashion to the Mayor of Margaritaville.
The series is part of the 10th annual Mississippi Songwriters Festival, in association with “Jazz Fest Unplugged” and is also sponsored by Cathead Vodka, Lagniappe Weekly and Scranton’s Restaurant and Catering as well as the Grand Magnolia Ballroom and Suites.
Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Lee Roy Parnell will play in Pascagoula on Thursday, Nov. 14th. The popular Americana / blues rock artist and slide guitar virtuoso is described as “a fine writer blessed with a rich, soulful vocal delivery and a blistering array of guitar chops drawn almost equally from Texas blues, Memphis soul and southern rock traditions.”
Much of his work (including songs that he’s penned for others) has regularly found a home inside the Top 40 and have even garnered Grammy considerations. His hit list of songs include “On The Road,” and “What Kind Of Fool Do You Think I Am,” as well as “Holding My Own,” and “Love Without Mercy”.
The Mobile duo Phil and Foster will open the show.
