Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie, March 2012

The Sisters Folk Festival in Sisters, Oregon (my favorite musical event of the year) hosts a singer/songwriter competition as part of the weekend festivities.  This year, all of the contestants were wonderful but as soon as I heard Alicia McGovern’s first song, I knew that she would be the winner.  She writes beautiful and interesting songs, has a unique and charming voice, and an engaging, professional stage presence.  I came home from the festival and immediately added a bunch of her work to the daily rotation on the Pie.  So I’m very tickled to see her song “A Night on the Town” voted into the no. 1 spot this month.

Not a single San Diego songwriter made it into the Top 20 this month.  That’s rare but bound to happen sometimes since San Diegans account for such a small percentage of the 500+ songs streaming on Acoustic Pie.  Better luck next month!

Thanks for listening and for voting!
