As the mother of all songwriter festivals, Tin Pan South, wraps up this weekend, there will be no shortage of hit writers strapping on their guitars and stripping down the arrangements—the list, even with less than a week to go, is still staggering. Among the many worthwhile performances, here are a few that stand out.
Gary Burr, Hanson, Mark Hudson & Victoria Shaw
Yes, that’s the very same Mmmbop-alicious Hanson you’re thinking of, sharing the stage with a few songwriters who are not former teen idols but doing pretty well for themselves nonetheless. Hopefully, there will be no Dust Brothers-style record scratching going on during this one. (Playing Friday, 3rd at Mercy Lounge.)
