About the Songwriters Festival
Just like the Sunshine State, the Songwriters Festival is the kind of event that warms your soul. From throwback hits that your parents jammed out to, to your favorite songs growing up to today’s hits, the music played at this festival will make you feel both nostalgic and inspired.
However, as you may have guessed the Songwriters Festival isn’t just about great music. In fact, it’s about spotlighting the songwriters too. Although you may know all the words to a particular jam, we bet you don’t know who the song was written by, written for, or written about. This event presents a chance to really dive into the meanings of popular songs from yesterday, today, and tomorrow. While most festivals celebrate songs in some fashion, this one is more about the writers behind the songs.
The festival is proudly presented by Bozard Ford as well as several other local businesses. And, the festival now “falls under” the Sing Out Loud Festival “umbrella”.
About the Songwriters
Some of the songwriters who will be performing for 2023 are Chris Tompkins, Clint Daniels, HunterGirl, Cliff Cody, Mac McAnally, Keith Gattis, Jaida Dreyer … and many more.
