Sarah Jarosz headlines the 2015 Sea Level Singer/Songwriter Festival
3 Days of Concerts & Events
April 2-4, 2015
The Sea Level Singer/Songwriter Festival is a multi-day celebration of live, original music that features concerts, workshops, showcases and much more. The festival kicks off with a special performance by Sarah Jarosz, and includes not only amazing original material by the region’s most talented performers, but also has workshops geared specially for the military with a musical story to tell.
Now in its 8th year, Sea Level is the ONLY Singer/Songwriter Festival in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Festival is also the largest annual fundraiser for Tidewater Arts Outreach. The eclectic, popular, well-visited neighborhoods of Ghent and downtown Norfolk create a backdrop of restaurants, shops and burgeoning nightlife for a weekend of music.
