Dear Songwriters –

Many of you have supported and participated in the Festival for years and you are part of our family. Your continuing interest in the Festival is truly appreciated.

We have always had many more songwriters interested in playing than we have slots to play. And, 2017 finds us in a position where we will have fewer venues than in years past. We would like very much to have a place in the Festival for everyone who wants to perform. However, that’s not possible.

A decision has been reached to change the selection process. We will be accepting no applications.

The Festival will be reaching out to the songwriter.

The selection committee has been enhanced and will be employing all the tools at their disposal in determining who will be invited to perform.

We will try very hard to take all factors into consideration. Please be understanding of the difficult task with which the selection committee is faced.

We anticipate all invitations being issued by June 1st, 2017.

Warmest Regards,

Joe & the Festival Staff
