Songwriter Saturdays: Hugh Mitchell

The hit sounds and hip artists of Nashville are coming to Captiva Island — as 'Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa continues our monthly and highly popular "Songwriter Saturdays" introduced late last year. Feb 3, 2018 "The golden-throated troubadour" Hugh Mitchell performs on stage poolside from 1 PM to 5 PM. The event is free to resort guests and open to the public, with a very limited $50 per "carload" fee that includes admission to the event, plus use of all resort free amenities throughout the day (and evening). Reserve your admission now by calling 239.472.5161. With a fresh perspective on the art of sound and the craft of melody, Hugh Mitchell is raising the stakes with his newest recordings. Hugh has recorded his next EP with former Wilco and Uncle Tupelo drummer, Ken Coomer. This album is both orchestral and Southern. A style that captures the gritty, intimate, and soulful writing that Hugh is known for. “My new songs are a ‘hello’ for this years conversation. 2017 is a new start for me. I'm doing things with live shows and recordings & sound that I've always wanted to do. Ken and I focused on capturing what it feels like to be in a room with me. That was a great starting point." Hugh has toured nationally since 2006 as a side man for other artists in venues ranging from bars, to arenas, to stadiums. Hugh and fellow singer Charlie Mars have co-written the title track "Beach Town" for Charlie's upcoming 2017 release. This year sees Hugh touring the Southeast from Florida to Texas. Songwriter Saturdays will be staged the first Saturday of every month, and feature a nationally acclaimed singer songwriter (upcoming schedule to be announced).
