Over 40 local and international songwriters will take to Dripping Springs Oct. 19-21 for the 5th annual Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival.
The event, which will present more than 35 showcases per day, features a variety of musicians hailing from as far away as Toronto, Canada that will play “in-the-round” Nashville-style on five stages across the city.
All stages are within safe walking distance of each other in the historic downtown district of Dripping Springs. Performance run continuously Friday and Saturday until late in the evening. On Sunday, the event includes a Gospel brunch showcase at Hudson on Mercer, followed by a festival wrap party at the Barber Shop.
Musical acts include Lindsay Foote of Toronto, Canada, Claudia Gibson from the Wimberley area, Tom Meny of Buda and Michael Myers from Dripping Springs.
Each year a portion of the proceeds of the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival are donated to Kids in a New Groove, a nonprofit, charitable organization that provides musical instruments and one-on-one instruction and mentorship to foster children in Central Texas.
