Touted as a celebration of Folk, Americana, Country, Rock and Soul, the inaugural Park City Songwriter Festival launches September 13th and 14th. The event features over 40 artists in five intimate venues on Park City’s Main Street, with concerts, songwriters in the round, panels and workshops.
The festival’s creators describe themselves as “die-hard listeners” with a desire to create an experience with the feel of a house concert, honoring the art of songwriting while interacting with notable songwriters from all over the country. Festival-goers will hear the stories behind the songs and get to know headliners Marc Broussard, Anders Osborne, North Mississippi Allstars and Hall of Fame and award winning songwriters such as Earl Bud Lee, Kent Blazy and Kylie Sackley.
The venues – The Spur Bar & Grill, O.P. Rockwell, The Cabin, The Rockwell Room and Flanagan’s – will have non-stop festival programming the afternoon and evening of Friday, September 13th and all day and evening Saturday, September 14th. Ticket options offer a range of inclusions, from the general admission tickets for 28 shows and access to workshops to a limited number of Platinum tickets which include 32 shows with first entry seating, artist dinner and a dedicated concierge. You must be 21 or older to attend the festival. Go to Park City Songwriter Festival for more information and to purchase tickets.
