Weekend of Songs Festival

Weekend of Songs Festival













The art of songwriting was the focus of the Local Blend Coffee Shop's second annual Weekend of Songs songwriter festival. The three day festival of singer/songwriter performances, open mics, meet-ups, and jam sessions celebrating songs and songwriters included stunning performances by songwriters from around the country, around the state, and around our local community. Topping off the weekend was the “18 hour Songwriting Challenge” where Rocori High School student Nathan Ness walked away with the Golden Ukulele after composing a song from a topic picked out of a hat.
