Songwriters on the Plaza – Fred Ball, J.D. Lashley, & Gareth Rockliffe

November 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Songwriters on the Plaza                

The Lee County Library has partnered with the ACMA (Americana Community Music Association) to offer FREE concerts featuring all original music by local artists. These concerts will be held in the Amphitheater on South Cornog Plaza. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket, and in case of bad weather, shows will be moved to the nearby meeting rooms.

The ACMA, a Fort Myers-based nonprofit, promotes local artists who perform original songs. At these events, expect to hear singer-songwriters sharing a lifetime of experiences and the stories behind their songs. Prepare for an evening of professional-quality acoustic Americana music, which blends blues, roots, folk, bluegrass, and country. There’s plenty of space, so bring a friend and enjoy the music!

Fred Ball. Local singer/songwriter originally out of the Greenwich Village scene in the 60s.  Fred’s music  shares “Tall tales and verities” in the tradition of the 60’s.

J.D. Lashley If Folk Singer Todd Snider dropped his kid brother on his head, he’d have probably wound up a lot like JD Lashley. JD works hard and writes harder, trying to pluck jokes and rhymes out of the grind. His style is heavily influenced by Americana and Roots music, and he’s not afraid to sneak in a little Hip Hop… Something for everyone.

Gareth Rockliffe, a native of the UK, is a professional photographer who has enjoyed writing songs for the past thirty years. His songs are often deeply personal, but with a universal heartfelt appeal.
