If you like your music festivals spread out over the week, the Tin Pan has you covered. For relaxed song consideration, Richmond-born guitarist Drew Gibson plays hauntingly beautiful tunes from his 2015 folk masterwork, “1531,” on Wednesday, Aug. 5. The theme continues Thursday, Aug. 6, when Dan Navarro, the acclaimed songwriter formerly of Lowen and Navarro, sends chills up and down your spine with his acoustic six-string offerings. Things pep up on Friday, Aug. 7, when vocalist Heather Mayes joins the Richmond-based Triple Crossing Jazz Project for a night of toe-tapping pursuits. From finger-snapping to fist-pumping, Rich Robinson, founding member and guitarist formerly of the Southern soul rockers the Black Crowes, kicks out the acoustic jams with a solo performance on Saturday, Aug. 8. To bring the week to its rousing conclusion, the one-and-only Buckwheat Zydeco gets the crowd on its feet for a Louisiana-flavored dance party Sunday, Aug. 9.
