Hailing from the Forgotten Coast, Flying Fish can be found roving the highways and byways, the bayous and backwaters, in search of “the interesting tune less heard.” The musical duo of Jeff Dutrow and Robert E. Mason have been appearing in venues across the region delivering tasty music with a palette spanning from the Dead to Dylan, Neil Young to Mavis Staples, and points between. Blues, Americana, reborn classics – come tip a couple tasters while you listen to Flying Fish reinterpret some of your favorites and introduce you to songs that soon will be.

Record-breaking SGI Brewfest in 2018
The 3rd Annual SGI Brewfest on April 28, 2018 was again a smashing success. With a sold out crowd and amazing craft beers from more than 40 breweries, there were ample suds, sunshine, and smiles to go around. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, and the dedicated work of our local volunteers, we broke yet another fundraising record for the Franklin County Humane Society. This year, we are proud to have delivered a check for $33,000 (!!!) to the FCHS, represented at the presentation ceremony by Executive Director Karen Martin.

2nd Annual SGI Brewfest Raises $28,000 for Franklin County Humane Society.
In 2017, we raised $28,000 for the Franklin County Humane Society. Come help us break that record next year!
See the article in the Apalachicola Times.
The second annual SGI Brewfest was a huge success on April 29, raising $28,000 for the Franklin County Humane Society.
The generosity and support of the Brewfest sponsors, and the army of volunteers who helped make the event happen, were appreciated by all involved. Over 600 people spent the day at Paddy’s Raw Bar and Journeys of St. George Island, where they sampled the offerings of 40 craft breweries from around the country. Dining on delicious fare provided by Paddy’s, and entertained by the island tunes of Dave Dale, these pet lovers and brew buffs contributed vital funds to the ongoing operation of the Humane Society.
