Mark your calendars, folks…the lineup has just been announced and tickets are now on sale for Red River Songwriters’ Festival 2019!
Next year will mark the 8th year of the two-day festival which is scheduled to take place January 24-26, 2019 in Red River, New Mexico. The lineup will include debut performers, Jack Ingram and Jaimee Harris, returning artists Jon Randall and Mike Addington, along with festival founding members Drew Kennedy, Josh Grider, Walt Wilkins, Kelley Mickwee, and Susan Gibson.
Tickets are extremely limited as the intent of the event is to create a special intimate experience for attendees year after year. A reminder of that commitment in addition to an announcement regarding founding member Brandy Zdan was posted recently on Instagram. “We also share with you the news that our founding sister in song Brandy Zdan is stepping away from the group to pursue other musical opportunities, and while we are sad to see her go, know that Walt Wilkins, Susan Gibson, Kelley Mickwee, Josh Grider, and Drew Kennedy are committed to deliver on our yearly promise: a truly memorable and personal experience consisting of our own special amalgamation of songs, stories, snow, and scenery.”
At the Red River Songwriters’ Festival, attendees can look forward to a variety of solo shows, duo shows, and collaborations between artists as well as a grand finale performance featuring the founding members. Additionally, the festival also features late-night informal jams, early afternoon ski runs “and who knows what else“!
Grab your tickets here and get those skis ready for the “best little fest in the West”!
