Tallahassee Museum Hosts Swamp Stomp on July 9

The Tallahassee Museum presents it’s 33rd annual Swamp Stomp on Saturday, July 9, 4-9 p.m. Along with the music, you can enjoy outdoor games, close-up animal encounters, living history demonstrations, and environmental education.

The line-up includes contemporary acoustic, Americana, folk, bluegrass, and a special style of regional music that festival organizer Del Suggs calls saltwater music. “It’s acoustic music with a sunburn,” says Suggs, who made up the name to describe the north Florida music he’s been playing for decades.

Like saltwater music, much of the acoustic music performed annually at the Swamp Stomp has the authentic sound and feel of Old Florida, evoking images of salt marshes, cool rivers, limestone sinks, and red clay roads. Over the years, it has by its singer-songwriter nature adopted the youthful sounds of contemporary acoustic music, rich with sincere lyrics, ripe for free-flowing jam sessions.

The genuine quality of the songs, coming from the hearts of the performers, is what makes singer-songwriter music so great and has made the Tallahassee Museum’s Swamp Stomp a summertime favorite for 33 years.
