'Tunesmithing' to Celebrate 10th Anniversary on May 30, 2013
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 2013) -- "Tunesmithing" will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a special show from 7-10 p.m. May 30 (Thursday) at the Best Western Music Row, 1407 Division St. in Nashville.
Performers will include singer-songwriters Amy Allen, Lisa Aschmann, Everette Brown, Wil Comstock, Bryan Cumming, Leslie Ellis, Chris Floyd, Dar Frantz, Casey Kelly, Diane King, Denny Martin, Crystal Miller, Mirka, Steve Morley, Laurie O'Shea, Sean O'Shea, Candy Paull, Randi Perkins, Rick Perry, Laura Powers, Betsy Warren, Brian Wright and Chuck Whiting. Poet Butterfly will read selections from her new book, "Grandma Butterfly's Dirty Dishes". Comedian Paulina Combow and publicist Chuck Whiting will emcee the show.
"Tunesmithing" was founded in 2003 to spotlight emerging, professional and hit songwriters. The monthly show features an "open mic" and 25-minute solo sets that enable songwriters to share more of their songs. An emphasis is placed on mentoring, career growth and networking.
"We have a wonderful lineup of songwriters for the anniversary show," said show founder Chuck Whiting. "Most of the performers have performed on various 'Tunesmithing' stages over the past 10 years. We plan to return to a regular monthly schedule at a new venue sometime this summer."
