Emmy Award-Winning Filmmaker and Legendary Bar Owner To Host VIP Film Screening With Country Music Singer-Songwriters

 

FORT MYERS (August 28, 2019) — Celebrate Nashville singer-songwriters and music festival magnate, Joe Gilchrist, longtime owner of the world-famous Flora-Bama Lounge and the Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival. On the nights of September 18 and 19, 2019, Southwest Florida audiences will be treated to two nights of music, film, history, and the true story behind “The Godfather of the Country Singer-Songwriter Movement”.

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Lynn Rabren and Dive Bar Country’s Live from Nashville music series invites audiences to enjoy a VIP film screening of the unreleased film Stories In Rhyme, live performances in the round by talented artists from Nashville, and a Q&A with Joe Gilchrist and singer-songwriters in his group of guests.

Stories in Rhyme, due to be released in 2020, features the story behind the evolution of the award-winning Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival, an annual event at the world-famous Flora-Bama Lounge on the west end of Florida’s Panhandle. The film, featuring Joe himself, tracks the humble beginnings of his establishment that began as a haven for those seeking a little beer and liquor as it evolved into the home of a world class musical event.

The festivities begin on Wednesday Sept. 18th at Ter-Tini’s Music Hall (located next to Gator Lanes) with a screening of the official film trailer and a live discussion with Joe Gilchrist and a few of his singer-songwriter friends. Following the trailer, several singer-songwriters will perform their greatest hits and explain the inspiration behind the music. Doors open at 6pm. Tickets are $15 or two for $25. A Bar-b-Que dinner will be served for $14.95 a plate, and a full bar will be available.

The event is hosted by Chapin Leatherwood of DiveBarCountry.com and is sponsored by Jensen Resorts True Captiva. This is a VIP screening event of the entire 80-minute film featuring a Q&A with Joe and the singers and songwriters in attendance. Doors will open at 6pm and the film will start at 7pm. Tickets are free but an on-site contribution to Captain’s for Clean Waters is appreciated. A full bar will be available.
