a singer-songwriter haven: The Sentient Bean

I can’t even begin to guess how many touring singer-songwriters and other out-of-town acts have performed at The Sentient Bean since its founding in 2001. When we talk about Savannah’s “venue problem”, we’re usually talking about the lack of larger spaces, but the city also lacks regular spots for solo and acoustic acts that don’t already have local followings.

There’s an especially nice lineup of acts playing the Bean over the next few days. You can read about them on the Bean’s website, so here I’m just embedding some music:

Tuesday, Oct. 15: Kwesi K, Amy Andrews

Saturday, Oct. 19: Dylan Jane

Shows at the Bean typically start at 8 p.m. with a $5 suggested donation. The Sentient Bean is at 13 East Park Ave.
