It all starts with a song, and four Savannah songwriters will honor the legends that gave us some of our favorites. This exclusive concert follows last summers sold-out tribute of the same name and features the songs of Paul Simon, John Lennon, Carly Simon and Lyle Lovett.
John Cranford, frontman and principal songwriter for Hilton Heads Cranford Hollow Band, performs the simple, yet timeless songs of Paul Simon. From Mrs. Robinson to Graceland, theres a lot of ground to cover.
Ty Thompson, guitarist for the 60s British Invasion tribute band The Hypnotics, will be performing the music of John Lennon. Ty enjoys Lennons music, both his Beatles and solo material because of its well-written lyrics and clever musicality.

Shes performing the music of Carly Simon, focusing on Simons early pop career in the 1970s that included such hits as Anticipation, Youre So Vain and No one Does it Better.
And Ben Wells, a Savannah singer-songwriter and mainstay of the Savannah Songwriters Series, is performing the music of East Texass literate lyricist and bandleader Lyle Lovett, who hailed from the world of Western swing but who covers the genres of jazz, blues, country and even gospel in his diverse catalog.
