The 30th annual Savannah Music Festival runs March 28-April 13. One of Savannah’s strongest cultural institutions, SMF has grown from the modest Savannah OnStage into a premier regional event over the last three decades. In this week’s Do Savannah Podcast, we borrowed a clip from the Difference Makers' podcast where Savannah Morning News Opinion Page Editor Adam Van Brimmer interviewed new SMF Executive Director David Pratt.

Music this week comes from the Del McCoury band, who play March 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the Lucas Theatre. You can find tickets for all the shows at savannahmusicfestival.org and all of our coverage of the festival at dosavannah.com/savannahmusicfestival
