Friday – June 17, 2016

How to Enter
The Songwriter’s Showcase is open to all songwriters who are writing in the Bluegrass/Acoustic style. Participants must perform their own original material. Note: We recommend that all material be copyrighted or registered in some way.
To be considered, you must submit your name and contact info, along with a sample of your work.
This can be in the form of a CD, video link, or audio file (.mp3, .wav, etc.)
Submissions should be sent to George Finney ~ firstname.lastname@example.org
Stage time will be allotted based on the number of participants accepted. You should be prepared to play 1-3 songs.
Participants may be accompanied by up to two back-up musicians.
This is not a contest. No judges – No pressure. There are no prizes, but every participant will receive a live recording of their performance.
