Here’s one of two chances to see Georgia-based country rock and folk songwriter Gareth Asher in Tampa Bay (the soulful southerner also plays Hideaway Café on March 9). 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.
