2nd Annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest in September with award-winning lineup

fmbchamber : Wed, June 10, 2015 8:10 pm : Daily Update, Home, Play

LEE COUNTY, FL – Award-winning, internationally-recognized singer-songwriters will entertain residents and visitors at the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest this fall on Captiva Island, Fort Myers Beach and downtown Fort Myers in Southwest Florida.

The 2nd Annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest begins Sept. 17-20 on Captiva Island and wraps up Sept. 25-27 on Fort Myers Beach. Historic downtown Fort Myers will feature mid-week performances Sept. 20-24.

The free event takes place over 10 consecutive days and includes venues on the area’s most beautiful barrier islands with a range of star-studded performers.  Songwriters who have penned No. 1 hits for such artists as Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Lee Ann Womack, will perform at multiple venues. Some of the venues include ‘Tween Water’s Crow’s Nest, Key Lime Bistro and Doc Ford’s at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva; as well as Nervous Nellie’s, The Beached Whale and Matanzas on the Bay on Fort Myers Beach.

Headliner, 2010 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Terry Sylvester, started his musical career at the famous Cavern Club Liverpool in the early 1960s, often appearing with the Beatles with his first group, The Escorts.  In 1968, he replaced Graham Nash in The Hollies.  His first single with the group, “Sorry Suzanne,” reached No. 3 on the U.K. charts and his first album “Hollies Sing Dylan” went to No. 1. In 1969 they recorded “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother,” with Elton John playing piano. The song became The Hollies’ biggest hit.

The lineup also includes:

Even Stevens

Stevens’ songwriting career includes songs from the multi- platinum international hit, “When Youʼre In Love With A Beautiful Woman” by Dr. Hook, to the three-week No. 1 pop hit, “I Love A Rainy Night” by Eddie Rabbitt. He has accumulated 53 BMI Awards and is a Grammy and NSAI Songwriter Hall of Fame nominated composer.  Stevens wrote ASCAPʼs Most Played Song of the Year, “Love Will Turn You Around,” by Kenny Rogers and won BMIʼs Robert J Burton Award, Song of the Year for “Suspicions” by Eddie Rabbitt, earning him the distinction as a BMI “Songwriter of the Century.”

Wynn Varble

Two of Varble’s  No. 1 songs “Have You Forgotten” in 2003 and “Waitin’ on a Woman” in 2008 were nominated for Song of the Year by the CMA. His most recent No. 1, “I’m a Little More Country” (Easton Corbin) was nominated by the ACM for Song of the Year. Varble’s songs have been cut by artists Easton Corbin, Garth Brooks, Lee Ann Womack, Brad Paisley, Darryl Worley, Kellie Pickler, Montgomery Gentry and many more.

Bob DiPiero

One of Nashville’s most prolific songwriters, more than 1,000 of DiPiero’s songs have been recorded by other artists. His songs have been featured in TV shows, commercials and movies. In 2011, his song “Coming Home” from the Country Strong movie soundtrack was nominated for both an Oscar and Golden Globe Award for “Best Original Song in a Motion Picture.” Most recently the CMA presented DiPiero with the CMA Chairman’s Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions.

Kristen Kelly

With an exciting mix distilled from her country, blues, and classic rock influences into a passionate, playful, often sexy, and always heartfelt reflection of real life as Kelly knows it, she teamed up with hit songwriters Monty Criswell and Shane Minor to pen the love song “Miss Me.” Her single “Kiss By Kiss” was released in May 2014.

Check here for a complete list of artists.

The event is presented by The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel; BMI, the largest music rights organization in the U.S.; along with partners iHeartMedia, and Cat Country 107.1. For details including artists, venues, accommodations and more, visit www.islandhopperfest.com.
