RED LODGE SONGWRITER FESTIVAL 2019

JUNE 20th, 21st & 22nd, 2019 RED LODGE, MONTANA

Our Story

Having just completed the 3rd Annual Event 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. 

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.

This year we have an outstanding line up of Songwriters, Sponsors. Patrons and Venues hosting this years event.

Nashville hit songwriters James Dean Hicks, Wynn Varble, Hugh Presswood, Helen Darling and Brent Jones headline our third annual event. Our line up of Montana songwriters include 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 and that is to support music in our public schools. In 2017 the festival donated $8,500 to Red Lodge Public School Music department. This year with your help we hope to do more.

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 tourists and songwriters, including hit makers, to Red Lodge each summer to share their talent and skills with the local community 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.

Stay tuned for updates on our website or our Facebook page.
