About Event

RI Hospitality Association Presents Songwriters FestivalThe first ever Rhode Island Songwriters Festival will bring in nationally acclaimed singer-songwriters straight out of Nashville, Tennessee to Providence, Rhode Island. The festival will take place on Friday, August 21, 2015 at the RI Convention Center. With several back-to-back performances to watch, attendees will have the unique opportunity to experience the passion & dedication that is part of songwriting, by listening to the voices, back stories and personalities of the artists.

 Along with the songwriter’s performances, there will be several local chefs/restaurants offering food stations for attendees to graze in-between show times. There will be an exclusive green room (VIP ONLY) where the songwriters will meet and greet with our VIP guests while waiting to perform, a prime opportunity to get one-on-one time with these talented musicians.

 The ultimate goal for the Rhode Island Songwriter’s Festival is to become the established, premier singer/songwriter and performance event in the state on an annual schedule.
