Event Description:

The 2017 Island Hopper Songwriter Fest returns to The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel, Sept. 22-Oct. 1. This showcase, now in its fourth year, is a great way to see singer-songwriters perform in intimate settings on Captiva Island, Fort Myers Beach and historic downtown Fort Myers.


This year’s headliners include Lindsay Ell and Brooke Eden. The artists will be performing at Pinchers Crab Shack at The Marina at Edison Ford on Sept. 27. Ell has opened for The Band Perry and Luke Bryan, and is currently on tour with Brad Paisley. The Canadian Country Music Association recently nominated Ell for Female Artist of the Year. Her debut single, “Worth the Wait,” was recently released in the U.S.

The fourth annual music fest will continue to give fans the opportunity to meet the talented artists who write songs for country superstars including Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean and Tricia Yearwood. Attendees can listen to their favorite songs at live music venues on Captiva Island, including Key Lime Bistro, South Seas Island Resort and Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille. In downtown Fort Myers, performances will take place at The Barrel Room, Twisted Vine Bistro, City Tavern and Pinchers. The festival will wrap up on Fort Myers Beach with artists playing at Nervous Nellies, Yucatan Beach Stand, Matanzas on the Bay and Pierside Grill.
