Postponed - The Eric Smith Songwriting Challenge

 Due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 disease outbreak, the City of Lewisville has cancelled all events scheduled through May 10 at the MCL Grand. We are working to reschedule this event and ask that ticket holders keep their tickets until we can announce a new date. Those who do not wish to attend the rescheduled event may request a refund by emailing info@mclgrand.com or calling 972.219.8446 during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.). We will contact all ticket holders with new details as soon as we have them.

Calling all songwriters! Whether you’re a seasoned pro or new to the stage, you’re invited to join Acoustic Fridays (sponsored by the Visual Art League) for its quarterly Eric Smith Songwriting Challenge. The May challenge will take place on the Wayne Ferguson Plaza stage as part of Main and Mill Association’s “First Fridays in Old Town Lewisville.” This free event gives singer-songwriters – and listeners! – the chance to experience the courageous and exquisite beauty of original songwriting.

Come to perform:
Each challenge has a theme, and May's participants will write and perform their songs using the theme "A Real Good Time.”

Participating songwriters may perform their songs on acoustic instruments (amplified acoustic guitars are OK) or a cappella. We encourage solo performances, but songwriters may have an accompanist, also playing an acoustic instrument. The exception to the acoustic instrument rule is keyboard or electric bass is allowed.

There are no prizes and only two rules: Songs must be written specifically for this challenge and must be debuted at the event. The challenge starts at 7 p.m., though we encourage performers to arrive by 6:45 p.m. to select a performance slot on the sign-up sheet. Invite your friends and family to attend!

Come to listen:
First Fridays is free and begins at 6 p.m. This concert will begin at 7 p.m. and end when all songwriters have performed. Be sure to check out the demonstrations, samples, and local artisans along Main Street and stop by the many participating businesses. Bring your favorite cool beverages to the lawn (no glass allowed). Lawn chairs and/or blankets are encouraged.

Free to participate or listen. Public parking is available at Lewisville City Hall, 151 W. Church Street. The rain out location will be at Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles.
