Join us for the first ever SXSE Fall Festival! Exceptional live music from Ranford Almond & his band and special guest local singer/songwriter extraordinaire Melissa Joiner! Bringing the soul from Greensboro, North Carolina, Ranford Almond is a young singer/songwriter and troubadour that has begun to make his mark across the Southeast. Raspy fresh vocals meet the Appalachian strings of Ranford's guitar, reminiscent of John Prine and Townes Van Zandt with his own unique stamp. Furthermore, his talent extends far beyond composition and strumming, as he is a warrior with the electric as well. Ranford plays as a solo artist as well as fronting a full band. He also plays in the Big Something side project Red Panda! His new album "Old Soul" will be out November 3rd.
We'll have vendors including New South Coffee Roasters, PFC Creations, Waccamaw Naturals, Tiffany Fagnant Art, Rocket Custom Guitars, Knotty Roots, The Beach Mystic, Happy Lights, The Gnosh Pit & Black Cat Kitchen food trucks and more family fun and surprises! Marvelous Marvin will be there with a selection of his amazing Custom Rocket Guitars... one will be the main raffle prize! Plus we will have exceptional beer from New South Brewing and Grand Strand Brewing! This is a FREE event to benefit music education on the Grand Strand!
Thanks to our sponsors The Chambers Law Firm, New South Brewing, The Midtown Inn & Cottages, Grand Strand Brewing, Classic Rock WAVE 104.1, Native Sons, and The Adaptive Surf Project. To find out more about what we do, make sure to like our Facebook page!
