Laramie Singer-Songwriter Competition–in November



hi again

another announcement for those interested in the Fine Arts or participating, listening, heckling or all the above….Laramie is having its own S-S competition at the Buckhorn.

Like American Idol perhaps, and yet different–more introspection & guitars and less of a light show.    (although the Buckhorn and introspection are not really roommates)

here are the rules via the promoter/organizer/fiddle player Jon Gardzelewski:

Still working out the details, but we’re going to do this right and be fair. Here is a draft of the rules:

1). 3-4 original songs played and sung by the contest with an instrument of their choice.

2). Lyrics must be printed out for distribution.

3). Contestants judge and select their top 3 songwriters, and their top 3 songs for each round.

4). First round takes place over two Fridays: November 15th & 22nd.

5) Top 3 songwriters from each night compete in the final round, December 6th, where they will play 5 songs. Final judging TBD.

6). Money prizes.

7). Possible radio deal for winning songwriter and best song.

. Winners without recordings will be given a short recording session for an opportunity at Radio play. Details TBD.

9). Spread the word, lets get some talent out on stage!
