On Friday December 6 Pirates & Poets co hosted a House Concert with the folks from Weaver's Landing in Shore Acres TX. Hit Songwriter Thom Shepherd performed to a small but attentive crowd.
It was very different than most Thom Shepherd shows I've seen lately. Definitely more stories and songs about his Nashville days than we get at a Trop Rock event or even a larger House Concert.
Thom is best known for hits like "Riding With Private Malone," "Redneck Yacht Club," and "Always Saturday Night." He usually performs as a duo with his wife Coley, but was playing solo during this run. We're already looking forward to seeing him again in 2020.
Did we mention that Thom is in heavy rotation over at Pirates & Poets Radio?
At the end of our 2016 Songwriters Invitational in Port Aransas the crowd (and the P&P Crew) were surprised with a special encore. Our artists, led by Donny Brewer, had prepared a special song just for the occasion. Luckily we recorded the show, so the encore has been preserved for eternity!
The Pirates & Poets Songwriter Invitational is held in Port Aransas, TX each February. It features independent songwriters that work in the Trop Rock, and Americana genres. Many of the artists that perform at the event are featured on Pirates & Poets Radio.
Pirates & Poets is dedicated to introducing independent songwriters and musicians to new fans. We book and produce live shows and events that highlight these artists. We also produce an online radio station that broadcasts online 24/7/365.
