Kathie Baillie, Michael Bonagura and Alyssa Bonagura | Fri Oct 6

From the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival: 

Kathie Baillie & Michael Bonagura

Kathie Baillie and Michael Bonagura were part of the popular country music trio Baillie And The Boys, which emerged as one of the best known bands of the late ’80s and early ’90s and became an integral part of forever shaping the direction of today’s country music. 

Alyssa Bonagura

A songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Alyssa Bonagura spent the past decade fine-tuning a sound that reaches far beyond her Nashville roots. It is a sound that blurs the boundaries between genres, mixing the southern storytelling of country music, the free-thinking spirit of rock ’n’ roll and the cinematic sweep of Britpop into its own hybrid.
