Songwriter Showcase


"Sawgrass" Cindy Hackney!

"Come Monday!" for "Sawgrass Cindy!"

Monday August 21st

at the

Marco Players Theater

Inspired by wild and grassroots Florida, Cindy Hackney composes and performs songs about the breath-taking beauty of the Everglades environment, local culture and the heartbreaking loss of both.

You might call her genre folk with a dash of country and pinch of Celtic.

She calls it "Sawgrass."

Cindy has lived in Florida for 31 years, and got her start playing around the campfire at the old family hunting camp in the Picayune Strand. She has played local venues such as the Rod and Gun Club in Everglades City, JT's Island Grill and Gallery in Chokoloskee, North Carolina Outward Bound in Everglades City, the Florida Folk Festival in White Springs, and many environmental and community events and fundraisers between Everglades City and Sanibel Island.

For 4 years, Cindy has organized the performers for Corkscrew Samp's After-hours programs, and performed her own original songs for events.

Her song "Gator in a Slough," from her first CD, took third place in the Will McLean Festival's "Best New Florida Song" contest in 2001.

Cindy is presently working on her third CD, "Hello Country Moon."
