SPRING CITY — Contemporary folk musician Savannah King will be performing at Chaplin’s in Spring City on Friday, June 28.
Also appearing with King are Stella Ruze and Shabby Road. Doors are at 6 p.m., show begins at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $15 at the door. Chaplin’s is located at 66 N. Main St., Spring City, PA 19475.
Savannah released her newest and second full-length album, “Cliffrose” on March 5. “Cliffrose” was recorded in Nashville and is a musical celebration of traveling the American Southwest desert through forest service roads and remote adventures in her 1987 campervan.
The album is accompanied by a 24 page book of pictures and stories from the road called “Cliffrose: The Making of an Album.”
Savannah has opened for artists such as Emmylou Harris, 10,000 Maniacs, Harpeth Rising, Ernie Halter, Field Report, and performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
Savannah’s songs have been honored in both the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Songwriting Competition and the Wildflower Al Johnson Performing Songwriter Competition.
She has toured with two-time platinum selling artists 10,000 Maniacs as an opening act, harmony vocalist, and rhythm guitarist.
Last September, Savannah successfully raised $8,400 in under 30 days through her first Kickstarter Campaign. The campaign, which was backed by 78 donors, funded the making of “Cliffrose.”
Although many musicians spend extended time on the road, Savannah’s situation is quite different. In 2016 she moved full time into her 1987 Ford Coachman campervan to tour and immerse herself in the beauty of the desert.
Since then, Savannah has completed three successful solo tours, gained a dedicated Instagram following, and successfully channeled her travel of the Sonoran desert back roads into her nine song new album.
