“Having national songwriter’s come to Red Lodge , Montana and hearing the history & the story behind the songs they have written. Amazing to hear who cut their songs and knowing that you are a part of history from their hometown to ours. Imagine sitting in an outdoor mountain patio, tented concert area or hearing them under lights of a historical theater. The South Meets West and what a treat! “

“Mike & Cory — congratulations on, and thank you for putting together, the First Annual Red Lodge Songwriters’ Festival. What a great surprise! The first evening was mesmerizing and nostalgic. We felt the writers were performing just for us in the cozy atmosphere created in the Back Room. After not seeing Kostas for nearly 40 years, he brought back many fond memories of younger years and Red Lodge in the early 70s. We enjoyed every night’s performances and saw several smaller performances from the “up-and-coming” writers. We look forward to a great Second Annual Festival and wish you best of luck for next year”.
