Looking for the perfect getaway this spring? Plan to attend one of my favorite events, the Key West Songwriters Festival, which will take place in Key West, FL April 28 – May 2. Celebrating its 15th year, the festival is the largest of its kind in the world, which revolves around five days and nights of more than 20 free shows, staged at an array of the island’s most popular drinking holes and hot spots, where live music bliss introduces crowds to the faces, voices and stories behind the songs. Diverse lineups featuring more than 100 top songwriters deliver rare, “Key West-only” moments. This year, my friend and Universal South recording artist Randy Houser kicks things off with a free concert at the Ocean Key Pier on April 28.
