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!
