From Savannah Stopover, SavannahNow join forces for free Forsyth Park concert:

The Savannah Morning News, savannahnow.com and Savannah Magazine are proud to announce a new partnership with the Savannah Stopover Music Festival, March 7-9.

The media network and Visit Savannah will be the presenting sponsors of the free-to-the-community Concert in the Park featuring legendary indie rockers of Montreal in Forsyth Park on March 8.

There’s a whole lot more in the piece about the partnership as well as some details about Stopover shows. I’ll only add that it’s great to see Savannah Stopover, which just got rolling in 2011, picking up this sort of institutional support.

And it’s been great to see the expanding music coverage in the Savannah Morning News over the past year or so too. I don’t know any of the financial details, but this seems like an excellent move on all sides.

Contrary to what many people assume, I just freelance as a columnist for the SMN — a relationship that’s been in place for better than 12 years now. I had no idea that this partnership was brewing, but I’m sure glad to be passing along the news.
