Del Suggs is widely recognized as one of the founders of Trop Rock, which has also been popularized by Jimmy Buffet, Kenny Chesney, and Zac Brown. Del's songs evoke the quiet beauty of coastal life and its easy, laid-back lifestyle.
He began his career in his hometown of Panama City, Florida, performing in a distinctive style he called salt water music, which evolved into Trop Rock.
Del is featured with his own chapter in the book, Trop Rock Songs: Stories and Tales, by Andy Forsyth.
Del is also widely known for his devotion to public service and for his series of annual benefit concerts to support human rights and environmental, educational, and civil rights organizations.
He has been nominated three times for the prestigious Harry Chapin Humanitarian Award, fellow nominees include Yoko Ono, Jackson Browne, Judy Collins, and Elvis Costello.
Smithfield Fair had its origins in Pensacola back in 1973. Originally known as Laughter, it was a musical project founded by Dudley-Brian Smith, designed to promote original songs with vocal harmonies accompanied by acoustic instruments.
Smithfield Fair released Evermore in 2017, the band's 31st album of original music. They sound like no one else with their highly developed unique blend of folk, Celtic, blues, swamp music and gospel.
Smithfield Fair maintains an active performance schedule of concerts, fairs, and festivals throughout the Southeast from their base in Alexandria, Louisiana.
Tina and Her Pony is an indie folk duo based in the musical hotbed of Ashville, North Carolina. Tina Collins and Quetzal Jordan met in Ashville and spent two years in Taos, New Mexico before returning East.
They are both classically trained musicians who met while touring in the 5-piece band, Over Under Yonder, which played original music composed by Tina.
They immediately recognized their strong musical and spiritual connection and after the Over Under Yonder tour ended, they began playing together as Tina and Her Pony. The duo has 2 full length studio albums and an EP to its credit, including the critically acclaimed Champion (released in 2017), recorded at Ashville's famous Echo Mountain Studio.
