Song Fest on Music Row Opens Sign Ups For 9th Annual June Performances
3 Days of Live Original Music from all genres on multiple stages, classes, Open House, networking and gathering of old friends in Nashville, TN represent the past, present and future of songwriting.
The 9th Annual, 2011 Nashville SongWriters Festival is several music happenings in one! Find your place in the mix. It’s part live original music festival, part music conference, part networking opportunity and part gathering of old friends held June 3-5. The live performances, education and Open House are concurrently running events. Attendees can take in all or parts and "Play it by ear!"
Songwriters of all genres share their music on multiple stages and open sing rings. The fest is open to all forms of songwriting, from the novice to the professional. There are no pre qualifications to play or attend. Everyone is encouraged to come as they are. All attendees will have the opportunity to share their words or music and find their place in the mix.
While at the fest, writers can also attend Pro Instruction classes, workshops, Q & A sessions and gather other personal tid bits, all about the craft and business of songwriting.
An Open House is held by participating recording studios, publishers, song pluggers and other music related businesses where writers can drop by without an appointment to ask questions, exchange samples or discuss what part they play in the business of Music. Register your music related music business for the Open House or if you're a festival attendee, stop by and check out some of the industry.
For registered and non performing writers there will be a "Writer's Area" provided by the Fest near the Info Booth. At the display table attendees can deposit their CD'S and the fest staff will take inquiries or make sales for participants. Also drop off a copy of your songs in the Fest Drop Box where your materials can be checked out by the fest or forwarded to others.
Come to share your music and have fun playing the songs that you have written. While at the fest we hope you get inspired, reinvigorated, find co writers, network and write some new tunes.
Another historical gathering begins to shape up as we throw down at this years congregation to celebrate the spirit of the songwriter. Many special guest and surprises await but as always, the real featured writer is you!
Registration is now officially open.
