About The Show
The Peace Center’s Songwriters Concert Series returns! Led by Greenville favorite Edwin McCain and accomplished songwriter Maia Sharp, each concert brings a new guest singer-songwriter to the Upstate for a one-of-a-kind listening room experience in Genevieve’s theater lounge.
Will Kimbrough is a singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist deeply rooted in classic rock ‘n’ roll, old school country, gospel, traditional blues, and folk music. His songs have been recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Little Feat, Todd Snider, and many other artists. He has played on dozens of albums by dozens of artists, including Jimmy Buffett, Rodney Crowell, Todd Snider, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and many others.
His production work (Todd Snider, Doug Seegers, Shemekia Copeland, Steve Poltz, Radney Foster, and others) has earned him honors and awards, most recently Blues Album of the Year at the 2019 Blues Awards in Memphis and Producer of the Year by the Living Blues Magazine Critics’ Poll.
Called the “great American romantic” by The New York Times, Edwin McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years. His enduring love songs and wedding must-haves “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask For More” have become two of the biggest love songs in the history of pop music. 2018 marks the 20th year of the hugely popular “I’ll Be,” which topped the Billboard charts in 1998 and has proven to be a timeless classic over the past two decades. After recording his mega hits and experiencing the success that comes with a television show (Flipping Ships), McCain now performs upwards of 100 shows annually throughout the US.
Maia Sharp wears many hats. She has had her songs recorded by The Dixie Chicks, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Keb’ Mo’, Cher, Edwin McCain, and Art Garfunkel. She produced McCain's album Mercy Bound and, most recently, two songs for Garfunkel's retrospective double album, The Singer. Sharp has six solo releases, and her latest duo project is Roscoe & Etta, with writing/production partner Anna Schulze. Each release has led to extensive touring throughout the US and UK, and appearances on Mountain Stage, Acoustic Cafe, World Cafe, NPR's All Things Considered, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today.
