Women Of Acoustics Music Series returns March 6


Women Of Acoustics returns to Jacksonville Beach in a weekly Artist’s Series beginning Tuesday, March 6, at Whiskey Jax, located at 950 Marsh Landing Parkway.

A weekly dinner event, Women Of Acoustics will feature North Florida women singers/songwriters from a variety of genres every Tuesday night from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

“North Florida has one of the most unique music communities in the nation and the level of talent here is staggering,” said Mike Kaufmann, a Ponte Vedra native known for spearheading the local Blues resurgence over the past five years. “Our women of song can compete on any stage with any named artist and hold their own any day.”

Women Of Acoustics is being offered as a program of the Beaches Artist Series and will rotate more than a dozen different female artists each week for as long as the run continues.

“The Tuesday Night Blues Club just took a break from a four-and-a-half-year run and our other flagship event, Sunday Sessions (a rhythm & blues revue at Whiskey Jax in Baymeadows) is in its fourth year and still going strong,” Kaufmann said. “We expect a long successful run with Women (Of Acoustics).”

Opening the run are two popular artists, Debbie Johnston and Carole Mayedo, known as The Great Dames Duo. Johnston is well known for her long run as an acoustic soloist, and Mayedo is a Northern California transplant who made a name for herself as an electric rock violinist. Mayedo was nominated for a Grammy, and has played with names such as Jefferson Starship, Neil Young and The Lucas Orchestra (of “Star Wars” fame).
