The Savannah Folk Music Society will kick off 2015 with another fun-filled evening at its First Friday for Folk Music on Jan. 2 at First Presbyterian Church.
This month's show features Jeff Beasley, Alice Rye and host Chris Desa, president of the Savannah Folk Music Society.
"Jeff is a local guy who has been playing music for a long time," Desa says. "He played for a while in Nashville. He's a good singer and songwriter and he plays bass drum with his feet while he sings."
Beasley also performs with Mike Perry, his bass player for 10 years, and the duo plays a lot of original music.
Rye is a local musician who moved to Savannah several years ago with her late husband Albert Williams. She is the voice and bassist of their successful country/folk duo Alice and Albert.
"Alice is an excellent singer," Desa says. "She performs very meaningful songs ... and a lot of her songs are based on true stories."
Desa says he'll perform some of Albert's music with Alice during the show.
"It will be a night of really great music and we hope people will come out to enjoy these talented musicians at a nice, clean family event."
