The Beautiful Dosta Playhouse in downtown Valdosta hosts the first installment in the 2nd annual ExploreGeorgia.org Songwriter Series featuring Randall BramblettEliot Bronson and Joe Smothers. Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.; tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. The intimate concerts feature the artists sharing the stage and playing off of one another as they take turns sharing their songs and the stories behind them.

Rolling Stone called Randall Bramblett “one of the South’s most lyrical and literate songwriters.” The Athens resident just released his eleventh album, Juke Joint at the Edge of the World, on New West Records, and says that it is “rooted more in the soul and R&B dance music that I grew listening to and playing.” The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has been a distinguished force in music for four decades, as a solo artist, as a member of the rock-jazz fusion group Sea Level and in recording and touring stints with artists including Bonnie Raitt, Steve Winwood, and Widespread Panic, among others.

On Aug. 25, Nashville’s Rock Ridge Music will release Eliot Bronson’s latest album, James, his second to be produced by Dave Cobb, the Savannah native known for his work with Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson. Bronson mines early blues, folk and roots traditions to create soundtracks for his thoughtful, evocative stories. He's a past winner of the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest and the Eddie Owen Presents “Songwriter Shootout.”

Longtime Valdosta singer, songwriter and guitarist Joe Smothers was born in North Carolina like his hero, Doc Watson, with whom he toured for years and recorded more than a dozen albums. He also toured extensively with and recorded an album with Watson’s longtime musical partner, the “flatpicking powerhouse” Jack Lawrence. Smothers has been a staple on the Valdosta music scene for more the decades but he recently recorded his very first solo album, These Things I Know.
