When you first hear the premise for the Tybee Island Songwriters Festival, it might be a bit surprising that something like it would take place on Tybee.
The concept is one you’d normally see in Nashville—a multi-venue festival featuring a mix of prominent and up-and-coming songwriters sharing the stage together.
Some of the prominent writers you might not know by name, but you’d definitely know the songs they penned for popular artists.
Thanks to songwriter Sean Squires, Tybee Island is about to be transformed into a hotspot for writers over the course of a weekend. Squires tells Connect that the idea for the Tybee Island Songwriters Festival was hatched a while back.
