After announcing the cancellation of it's planned event with Josh Roberts & The Hinges last week, fans of local non-profit South by Southeast will be happy to hear the group still plans to hold an event in Auguts.
The latest SxSE Musical Instrument Drive, an event which solicits donations of musical instruments to support music education in schools, will be held Aug. 7 at Liberty Tap Room, 7651 N. Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach.
Sweet Nell and The Feast & Friends will perform from 4-8 p.m. and the event will feature deals on food & brews from the microbrew pub.
Attendees are asked to bring along any musical instruments that you can donate. SxSE will then have them conditioned for use and make sure they find a good home. If you don't have instruments to donate, the group is also solicting cash & check donations.
South by Southeast annual concert series memberships will be available for purchase as well as souvenirs, music CDs, stylish SxSE casual wear (t-shirts, caps and more).
The next South by Southeast Music Feast will be Oct. 1 at the Myrtle Beach Train Depot and will feature Steve Young and Jubal Lee Young.
Steve Young was an integral part of the movement that spawned and defined the California country-rock sound. Appearing on his 1969 classic album, "Rock, Salt & Nails", were Gene Clark, Chris Hillman, Bernie Leadon and Gram Parsons - all of whom were members of the legendary Flying Burrito Brothers and the Byrds.The best known song of Steve's is "Seven Bridges Road", covered bymany but most famously by the Eagles.
Jubal Lee first appeared on the SxSE scene at a Music Feast a few years back in the "Sons of Guns" tour, performing with fellow singer and songwriter Justin Townes Earle. Jubal's smoky baritone invokes the familiar sound of John Lee Hooker, Bob Seger and Hank, Jr. Whether he's playing originals or covers, he delivers first class Americana.
