Eric Smith Singer/Songwriter Challenge

Join in the fun on Friday, June 21
Post Date:June 14, 2019
Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater will hold the Eric Smith Singer/Songwriter Challenge on Friday, June 21, 7 p.m., at MCL Grand, 100 N. Charles Street.

The Acoustic Fridays group is celebrating its 10-year anniversary, so it’s only fitting that this challenge incorporates the theme of “birthday/celebration.” Participants are asked to write and perform songs using the word “birthday” or “celebration," or following a theme based on those words.

Participating songwriters may perform their songs on acoustic instruments (amplified acoustic guitars are okay) 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.

To reach MCL Grand from Interstate 35E, take exit 452 and proceed east on Main Street to Charles Street. MCL Grand will be on the left. Free public parking is available along Main and Church streets, or at Lewisville City Hall across Church Street from the center.
