Located in the heart of downtown Clearwater, you can find our Coachman Park venue kissing the intercoastal waterways that runs parallel with the number one beach in America. Attendees are serenaded by five musical acts each day. Each performance will surely get your hips moving and arms waving.
The Clearwater Sea-Blues Festival will have incredible artists on stage is a smorgasbord of seafood dishes. A stroll through the food village will surround you with aromas of fresh grouper, cajun shrimp, large dishes of paella, and that’s only the beginning. There are also other options for our non-seafood loving friends. This Festival is free for the public to enjoy and there are also VIP and reserved seating packages available as well. Betty Fox will be one of the headlining performances.
With an extensive background in gospel and a lifelong passion for soul music, Betty Fox has burst onto the Florida music scene in a whirlwind of controlled yet unabashed passion and has taken the hearts of anyone wise enough to lend her their ear. Betty Fox appreciated singing early in life and performed for the first time at a church play at the age of 4. Her family had a deep love for southern country gospel and tight harmonies which they would express at every family gathering, and that is where her affinity for music began.
“My uncle Fred would pound on the keys with his monster hands and the harmonies would resonate in my soul”, Fox says. Now, at age 27, this fiery songstress has her own musical project with quite a few heart wrenching, lyrically driven and musically sound original tracks that beg the question “What kind of life must this old soul have lived?” To support her talent, she has carefully selected musical heavyweights Matt Walker on guitar, Benjamin Sudano on bass, and Sam Farmer on drums to set herself up for nothing less than well-deserved success.
You definitely don’t want to miss this one of a kind musical experience! If you haven’t heard them, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of their first album “Too Far Gone”, released in July 2012 and titled after one of her powerful original songs in which she pleads with a loved one lost in addiction. “It’s the most important song on the album”, Fox says. From the Salsa tinged chart “Goodbye” written as a farewell to her beloved Grandmother, to “Dirty Soul”, a rickety anthem of her love affair with music and a thorough homage to Howlin’ Wolf, this album will pull at your heartstrings and make you want to dance while you play it on repeat.
