Tampa Bay gets two chances to see soulful southern songwriter Gareth Asher

This one at Safety Harbor Art & Music Center should be pretty special considering Asher’s history with the town (he played Songfest in the neighborhood festival’s first and second years). Don’t be surprised if you ugly cry during the emotional opening set by songwriter Edie Carey, either.
