30A Songwriters Festival Wins Hearts

Seven years ago, South Walton, Fla., was not a place anybody wanted to go in January. The most off month of the tourism off-season, it can be downright cold. Mitten weather. Even before sundown.

But six years ago, the 30A Songwriters Festival was born. Now, the stretch of Northwest Florida is a hot mid-January destination for music fans who like to get up close and personal with their favorite singer-songwriters — and discover new ones — in relaxed, intimate venues a stone’s throw from beaches known for their pristine, “white-sugar” sand. Gorgeous ocean sunsets are just icing on the cake for this laid-back affair, which took place this year from Jan. 16 to 18 and featured some of America’s most esteemed writers and performers.
