Songwriters Festival Returns October 18
The Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival will be returning again on Oct. 18-20 with a roster of local, national and international songwriting talent.
This sixth annual event will present more than 35 showcases a day, featuring a “wide variety of finely-crafted songs and the people and stories behind them.”
The press release says, “Over 40 extremely talented songwriters, coming from four countries and five states, will play “in-the-round”, Nashville-style, on six intimate stages located at: The Barber Shop, Mazama Coffee Co., Acopon Brewing, The Sidecar Tasting Room, Hudson’s on Mercer, and Milton’s Cottage - all of which are within safe, easy walking distance of each other in the quaint Historic District of downtown Dripping Springs.”
Performances run continuously on Friday and Saturday from afternoon to evening, and on Sunday the festivities include a spirited Gospel Brunch Showcase at Hudson’s on Mercer, followed by the ever-popular Festival Wrap-Party at the Barber Shop. Parking is plentiful, food and drinks will be available at each venue, and admission to all the showcases is free to the public. There will also be complimentary shuttle service between venues, provided by Golf Cars of Austin.
Organizers call attention the smaller town feel of the festival over big city events. “Easily accessible and extremely well-organized, the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival is a welcome, ‘industry-opposite’ change from the typical ‘Austin-Palooza-Music-Fest’ that everyone is familiar with. This annual event offers people the up-close and personal chance to see, hear, and get to know some very talented performers who have a deep love of the art of songwriting,” the press release said.
