Our friend, and Coffee House favorite, Tim Merkel will host an evening of original music.

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.
