Visit Farragut hosts inaugural Songwriters Showcase

In honor of Tennessee Songwriters Week, Visit Farragut will host two musical performances at Casual Pint as part of the inaugural Farragut Songwriters Showcase. A "ladies' night" performance at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21, will feature three female artists, and a songwriters-in-the-round performance at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23, will feature four artists. In June 2018, the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development passed a state statute designating the last full week of February as "Tennessee Songwriters Week." Activities across the state will celebrate the foundation of the craft, recognize songwriters and pave the way for future artists.  Farragut has been attracting visitors with live musical performances since the creation of the Lawn Chair Concert Series in 2015. A second live music series, Sounds of Summer, moved into Farragut in 2018. The Songwriters Showcase is a way to celebrate local artists by giving them the chance to widen their audiences, says Farragut Tourism Coordinator Karen Tindal. "I never realized how many opportunities there are to enjoy live music in Farragut until I put together the event calendar for visitfarragut.org. Almost any evening, you can find a performance at a Farragut restaurant or pub," she says. "We have so much local talent, and this is another great way to showcase these artists." Hana Rothenberg, Kelsi Walker and Shayla McDaniel will perform on Feb. 21, and Kevin Mahoney, Chris Long, Roger Alan Wade and Shea Redhorse will perform on Feb. 23.

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
