RED LODGE SONGWRITER FESTIVAL 2018

JUNE 21st, 22nd & 23rd, 2018 RED LODGE, MONTANA

Our Story

We’re proud to announce the 3rd Annual Red Lodge Songwriter Festival, June 21st thru the 23rd 2018.

After an overwhelmingly successful event in June of 2017 we are looking forward to an even bigger event in 2018. Our 2017 lineup included  Nashville Hit Songwriters  Even Stevens  recently named to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. James Dean Hicks, Tony Lane, and Kostas all returned by popular demand along with new comer to the RLSWF Brice Long. Along with nine of Montana and Wyoming’s best songwriters, Sean Devine, Tom Catmull, Al Cooper, Cory Johnson, Annalisa Rose, Matt Strachin, Kaylin Beasly, Chad OkruschJessica Lechner, & Lee Eichenbergerthese artists will perform a total of fourteen shows in seven local venues over three days, most of the shows being free to the public.

Over 50 incredibly talented songwriters submitted over 60 songs into our songwriting contest. The eventual winners opened for our Nashville Writers at our last event to a standing ovation. Many more attended workshops learning how to hone their craft.

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.

With the support of sponsors, fans and private donations the RedLodge Songwriter Festival was able to donate ten thousand dollars ($10,000) to local organizations. Eight thousand, five hundred dollars($8,500) to the RedLodge Public School Music Department and fifteen hundred dollars ($1,500) to operation Second Chance that helps heal wounded veterans thru outdoor recreation. Thank you for all your support.

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