At Savannah Music Festival, big variety makes big impressions, and Gullah culture takes center stage


The opening weekend of the 17-day Savannah Music Festival ended last Sunday with an energetic and immensely creative tribute to Gullah culture presented by musicians familiar to Charleston audiences.

The double bill featured Etienne Charles and his band performing a newly composed suite called “Gullah Roots” followed by the Lowcountry’s own jazz-folk group, Ranky Tanky.

It was a sold-out, diverse and appreciative crowd at the intimate Charles H. Morris Center, a cornerstone venue for the festival. The music put everyone in a good mood.
