Award-winning Nashville songwriter Anne E. DeChant teams with Alabama author, Frye Gaillard for “Watermelon Wine: The Poetry of Americana Music,” a unique program of reading and song. In his award-winning book, Watermelon Wine, Gaillard maintains that great songwriters, like DeChant, explore the depths of the human heart with all the subtlety and feeling of our finest novelists and poets. Gaillard will present brief readings from his works, setting the literary context for Anne E.’s all-acoustic rendition of her songs. DeChant and Gaillard have appeared together at such diverse venues as Belmont University, Kimbro’s Pickin’ Parlor in Franklin, TN, the University of South Alabama, The Southern Festival of Books (Nashville TN), New Covenant United Church of Christ (Charlotte NC), NewSouth Book Store (Montgomery AL), The Alabama Contemporary Arts Center (Mobile AL), Lakewood, Hoover, Ephesus and Woodbury Libraries. In 2016 they will share this program with The Hank Williams Boyhood Home and Museum in Georgiana AL.
We hope to see you there.
