Dwight Sanford

July 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$12

Dwight Sanford is a fun loving kind of guy with a very unique sense of humor (that sometimes people don’t get) who looks for the funny part of everything and has a ball pointing out the dumb things that people say and do.  He grew up in a very small community called “PunkinCenter” in extreme North Georgia.  He started playing guitar at the age of five when his mother, Audrey, would sit him on the bed, place the instrument in his lap, and teach him little songs like “Chewing Chawing Gum”.  His hand was too little to reach the fret board so he noted it with his thumb.  Folks were amazed at how he could play with just his thumb at such an early age.  His mother taught him to sing harmony a bit later in life and he now has an acute understanding of vocal arrangement.

Today, he writes original music and runs a recording studio named “Oakleaf Studio“, named after a very large leaf his father George Amon Sanford gave to him after finding it in the woods many years ago.
