The Eric Smith Songwriting Challenge
Friday, Jan. 31
Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater will hold the Eric Smith Singer/Songwriter Challenge on Friday, Feb. 1, 7 p.m., at MCL Grand, 100 N. Charles Street.
Each challenge has a theme, and January’s participants are asked to write and perform songs on the theme of “mom,” “mama,” “ma,” “or whatever participants affectionately call their mother.
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 friends and family to attend.
