‘Songwriter by the Sea’ will continue to delight
By Daryl Brooke
CW Colt has been living and performing as a singer / songwriter in Key West and up and down the Florida Keys for almost 30 years. He has been on stage with the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker and Jimmy Buffet, and hung with some of Key West famous legends like Mel Fisher and Captain Tony. CW has recorded six CDs and written scores of his own songs. An engaging storyteller, leveraging his deep voice, his style is a wonderful combination of the local island spirit of one human family, and his strong country roots. He describes himself as “Caribbean Country Blues Master”.
The last few years CW has been working hard offering backyard concerts, offering his listeners a unique musical experience in the cool quiet intimate setting of his own backyard complete with dinner that he cooks. Besides headlining these backyard concerts himself, CW enjoys sharing the stage with other musicians and songwriting friends, local favorites as well as artists from other parts of the country.
Now CW Colt is kicking it up a notch, and embarking on a new project in partnership with Spencer’s Restaurant on the Beach at The Reach Hotel. Combining the backyard concert concept with a beautiful seaside beach venue, it is being called “Songwriters by the Sea” presented by Spencer’s. “This has been my dream!” CW describes this new concert series as “this is CW Colt’s backyard concert on steroids…and the best part is I don’t have do the cooking!” Although CW is a great cook in his own right, the gourmet meals served up by Spencer’s Restaurant will be a much more delightful way to enjoy these new concerts.
The first “Songwriters by the Sea” concert at Spencer’s will be this coming Wednesday, Aug. 5, 7:45 p.m., in the Pier Gazebo. Intended to be a regular series of concerts, CW Colt will be main performer along with a featured guest performer each week. The beautiful award winning songwriter Julianna MacDowell will be CW’s first featured guest at Spencer’s on Wednesday.
This will be a wonderful show in a very scenic and intimate seaside venue setting. Seating is limited with only 50 seats available, so book your reservation early through the concierge at 305-290-2049. You can enjoy dinner and the show at Spencer’s or just the show itself.
