Bringing a Little Bit of the South to South Florida

Although the old venue, Laffing Matterz, where Chrystal Hartigan's held her event Songwriter's Showcase, has shut its doors, the monthly event lives on at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Tuesday's event will include country artist Vickie Raye, singer-songwriter Julie Forester, Mark Stephen Jones (who's been dubbed the "Carolina poet"), and Trent Jeffcoat. If country music isn't your thing, don't worry, this show won't be four hours of Toby Keith wannabes. Most of these musicians seem to fuzz the line between singer-songwriter and country music artist, so square-dancing's not required.
