Swamp Sistas Songwriter Circle
Mississippi native, Florida and North Carolina resident singer-songwriter and pianist Beth McKee, celebrated for music that dwells “at the edge of the swamp and the city” (North Carolina’s INDY WEEK), loves performing with other women songwriters, so she figured the best way to do that was to create a collective. The Swamp Sistas Songwriter Circle is a group of artists McKee pulls from for in-the-round, acoustic performances introducing cream-of-the-crop women songwriters to audiences across the South as part of her regional tour stops. “The Circle provides a showcase for each musician’s repertoire, but we love to chime in occasionally on each others’ tunes,” McKee explains. The result is an intimate platform of collaborative female entertainers.
“The Circle is a vehicle for women songwriters to gig, collaborate and share our respective followings with each other, and my desire is to nurture this community and the music it generates.” Beth McKee
