The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, in partnership with Flying Saucer Presents, proudly announces that alt-country singer/songwriter Todd Snider will return to Ponte Vedra to play a solo acoustic performance on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. Reserved seating tickets for Todd Snider go on sale this Friday, July 13 at 10 am.
Singer/songwriter Todd Snider first garnered attention for his timely alt-rock satire “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues,” a folk-rock song that struck a chord with younger people fed up with angry alternative rock bands, and at the same time, appealed to aging rockers who grew up with the folk revival of the 1960s. Snider was born in Portland, Oregon, and grew up in Santa Rosa, Austin, Houston, and Atlanta. After moving to Memphis in the mid-’80s and establishing residency at a local club named the Daily Planet, he was discovered by singer/songwriter Keith Sykes. Snider’s debut album, Songs for the Daily Planet, was released in the fall of 1994; “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues” was added to the album as an afterthought only after intense lobbying by a Canadian music critic, and ultimately became a minor hit.
Doors 7:00 pm / Show 8:00 pm
