T. Hardy Morris, whom many of you will know because of his band Dead Confederate, has been added to the Revival Fest lineup for 9/20 here in Savannah.
The inaugural Revival Fest, which was also held inside and outside the old paint shops at the Georgia State Railroad Museum (aka The Roundhouse), was one of the best days of music of 2014 in Savannah, at least for those of us who are passionate about various roots genres.
An awesomely talented musician from Athens, T. Hardy Morris has found room on the Revival Fest bill because the previously announced Los Colognes will not be performing.
Morris’ addition is especially fitting since he shot a series of spectacular music videos at Georgia’s “Places in Peril.” The paint shops aren’t in peril, of course, but are the site of active restoration.
Check out the music, including videos from the state hospital in Milledgeville and Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden:
MusicFile Productions, parent company of Revival Fest and Savannah Stopover, also announced details about VIP passes for Revival Fest, which will include live music (band TBA) in the courtyard of The Brice (the old Mulberry Inn) with food and drink from Pacci Italian Kitchen + Bar. Pacci will also be running the pig roast at Revival Fest on Saturday. Click here for more details and here for tickets.
