“Some Enchanted Evening – The Music of Rodgers and Hammerstein”

Jan. 7 and 14 at 2 p.m.

South Baldwin Community Theatre

2022 West 2nd St., Gulf Shores

More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of

Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We

sing them in the shower, we dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio

and in clubs and, yes, in elevators and supermakets too. We still thrill to them on the

live stage in their respective shows, and we teach them to our children. This stunning collection of compoitions features an ensemble cast from ages 7 to 70! The songs are

sung as personal interplay, and then ‘onstage.’ While offering the performers an

opportunity to explore the songs within their own styles and sensibilities, it offers

the audience a glorious parade of genuine hits. Proving once again that music is

timeless, classic and has a place in every heart.

Live Music – Sugarcane Jane

2 – 6 p.m.

Flora-Bama Lounge

17401 Perdido Key Drive, Pensacola

Sugarcane Jane, the Alabama Gulf Coast-based husband and wife duo has amassed an extremely loyal following. Anthony and Savana Lee Crawford purvey what they proudly call “Organic Music at its Finest.” Rich, homegrown, and natural, their brand of Americana draws from a deep well of roots influences, interwoven with inflections of gospel, country, jazz, and rock. Listeners can expect mostly acoustic sounds, and some of the freshest-sounding vocal harmonies they will ever hear. Both virtuosos in their own right, Anthony is a songwriter who plays acoustic guitar, fiddle, and a bass drum (which he plays while strumming his six-string) and Savana Lee deftly dances between rhythm guitar and snare drum.

Multi-instrumentalist Anthony Crawford is known in most circles as a sideman to the stars. Over the course of the last 25 years, he has performed with Neil Young, Sonny James, Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam, Vince Gill, Rosanne Cash, and Rodney Crowell, and has written / co-written songs recorded by Steve Winwood, Dwight Yoakam, Kenny Rogers, Pegi Young, Lee Greenwood, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, to name a few. Yet, even with his history of working with heavyweights, Crawford feels Sugarcane Jane – his musical venture with multi-instrumentalist wife Savana Lee Crawford, is his life’s calling.

Sugarcane Jane newest studio album, Ladders and Edges – an album they conceived with the legendary Colin Linden, Canadian musician, songwriter and record producer, musical director of Nashville, and member of the group Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. The album is being released via Crawford's Admiral Bean Records on May 26, 2017. Recorded at Anthony Crawford's own Admiral Bean Studio, in Loxley, Alabama, this cave man groove, thought provoking album delves into present times with positive messages and insight.

“This album has been a long time coming. These are all our own songs and really give more insight as to who we are and what we believe in. Family is everything to us and we are trying to give our kids some guidance and advice in a song, without having to necessarily tell them everything,” says Anthony. “These songs go deeper than some of our previous albums. We really just laid our hearts out on our sleeves.”
