Join us as ten local songwriters take the stage for an evening of original music. Our modified version of the "in the round" format will work as follows:
- Songwriters will take the stage in two groups of five.
- Each songwriter will perform two original songs.
- Audience members will be able to purchase raffle tickets, which will double as "ballots" to vote for their favorites. Note: 100% of raffle proceeds support Tall Tales Festival
- At the end of the evening, audience favorites will be announced and one raffle ticket selected, with the lucky winner receiving a Tall Tales Music Festival prize pack, which includes the following: (1) Limited edition 2015 Tall Tales Festival screen-printed poster, (1) Tall Tales festival t-shirt, and (1) bag of Anodyne Coffee's "Tall Tales Blend."
What does "in the round" mean? A songwriters round is a uniquely intimate way to present original music. The typical format involves a group of songwriters positioned in the center of the room, surrounded by their audience. This layout provides a unique vantage point, providing the audience with a more up-close-and-personal way to experience the craft of songwriting.
