RED LODGE SONGWRITER FESTIVAL 2019
JUNE 20th, 21st & 22nd, 2019 RED LODGE, MONTANA
Welcome to the Red Lodge Songwriter Festival. For three days in June the streets of Red Lodge, bars, cafes, and parks become a gathering place for songwriters from Montana, Nashville, and around the country. This is the place that displays songwriting at its highest level in the amazing setting of Red Lodge, Montana. Park benches, bar stools, hotel lobbies, and parks become picking sessions.
We are looking forward to the 4th Annual June 20, 21, 22. 2019. We will be back with more great songwriters, venues and learning opportunities.
Nashville hit songwriters James Dean Hicks, Wynn Varble, Hugh Presswood, Helen Darling and Brent Jones headlined our third annual event. Our line up of Montana songwriters included Sean Devine, Tom Catmul, Lee Calvin, Melissa Forrette, Michele Rivers, Chad Okrusch, Kalyn Beasley, Annalisa Rose, Matt Strachan, Jessica Lechner, Jerod Birchell, Brook & Dawn and Addison Lea Thompson.
Fifteen live performances, a songwriting contest and our Master Class round out this years festival. In addition to entertainment and learning, this festival has a purpose to support music in our public schools. In 2018 the festival donated $10,000 to Red Lodge Public School Music department.
All were missing is you. We’re looking forward to sharing this incredible weekend of creativity and music with you. We also proud to invite you to enjoy the town of Red Lodge and our surrounding mountains which we are proud to call home. See you in June!
Our vision to create an annual event that brings songwriters and fans of great songwriting to Red Lodge each summer to share their talent and skills is well on it’s way to becoming a reality. Through this interaction of songwriters and their music we will create an inspirational culture that promotes creativity in songwriting, performing, and collaboration among the artists. Through your support as a sponsor, contributor, or fan we will continue to build this festival to become a one of a kind tourism event with recognition throughout the songwriting community.
