    Tommy Kelly, an American singer-songwriter from Indiana, will headline the Inaugural Shamrocks & Shenanigans Festival on Navarre Beach on Saturday, March 19th at 4 pm - 6 pm.
    Kelly is a seasoned performer. Since he was seventeen his voice has gripped audiences, taking the stage as front man to cover bands and rocking out not-too-unlike his early inspiration, Jim Morrison.
    But it was in Kelly's own adventure into the American west that his focus re-oriented toward songwriting and developing as a solo artist. Fusing his love of performing, whether to a happy crowd of 5 or 5,000, with the creative thrill in writing original music, Kelly recently recorded his debut EP, "Blood Moon" in Nashville, TN.
    Anchored by Kelly's exciting vocal range, the scope of his music - soulful, intelligent, forged with funk and laid back dynamism - is inspired by an array of artists such as Sturgill Simpson, Eddie Vedder, Jason Isbell, and Josh Tillman.

    Rachel Clearman to Open for Tommy Kelly at 2:30pm

    Rachel Clearman, an up and coming Gulf Coast Musical Artist, is a 17 year old singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist, and she will perform at 2:30 pm.  Originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, Rachel has been writing and performing since she was 10 years old. 


    She is currently performing from Pensacola to Destin, including Gallery Nights and Tunes by the Dunes on Navarre Beach.


    Her timeless sound is well beyond her years thanks to her deep musical soul. She provides performances for any size audience; small restaurant crowds, outdoor festivals, or large ticketed events.
