Song Bandits are Steve Fishack and Mary Ann Pridgen, local singer/ guitarists. In 2014 they formed the duet Song Bandits playing folk rock, acoustic rock, Americana and country at venues in the Savannah area. Steve is a retired social worker who has lived and worked in the Savannah area for almost thirty years. He got his first guitar during freshman year of high school. It wasn't until he met up with Mary Ann and the Midtown Pickers a few years ago that he started playing and singing outside his own living room. Now fifty years after graduating from high school he finds he really enjoys performing in public. Mary Ann, a retired teacher, began playing guitar and singing in folk choirs in her early teens. The two enjoy working out their own arrangements and harmonies. They share the same nostalgic love for the music they cover; Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Crosby, Stills Nash and Young and Lucinda Williams to name a few.
