Savannah Inn B&B to hold inaugural concert March 23Historic Lewes inn welcomes international touring Delaware musician
Savannah Inn Bed & Breakfast, a restored Victorian home at 330 Savannah Road in historic Lewes, will hold its very first House Concert at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 23.
The concert, which will be held in the beautiful restored barn behind the inn, will feature award-winning singer/songwriter Melissa Cox, a Delaware native and international touring artist.
This event is open to the public. As seating is very limited, RSVP is required to 302-645-0330 or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission is a donation at the door and includes one complimentary beer or wine refreshment and homemade dessert.
"I am so excited to perform at Savannah Inn," says Cox, who just returned from her first international tour in New Zealand. "The space is absolutely beautiful, and the owners of the inn are such gracious hosts. The show will be a sort of VH1's Behind the Music meets MTV Unplugged experience - very intimate, cozy and cool."
Cox is an international touring artist with more than 100,000 tour miles under her belt. She has shared the stage with the Spin Doctors, Sister Hazel, Smash Mouth, Three Dog Night and Tom Chapin, and headlined at hundreds of major festivals and premier venues in the continental U.S., Hawaii and New Zealand. At the heart of her music is classic rock and folk from the '60s and '70s, which she blends with Celtic, world beat, electronic and progressive.
Cox plays guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and a variety of hand percussion instruments, and does live vocal looping. In 2008, Cox was the winner of the Best Singer/Songwriter Award by Spark Magazine, and Best Musical Folk Artist by the Delaware Division of the Arts.
