Downtown Opelika will be filled with the sounds of live music May 24 to 26 during the inaugural “Opelika Songwriter’s Festival,” a collaborative effort between Rob and Jen Slocumb of The Sound Wall and The Arts Association of East Alabama.
Forty songwriters are scheduled to participate in 70 scheduled performances at various downtown Opelika establishments and restaurants, part of a fun weekend that will help showcase the town the Slocumbs have come to call home.
“We expect the Opelika Songwriters Festival to be a destination event for fans of singer-songwriters … we can’t wait to showcase this amazing array of talent and to shine a light on our wonderful hometown of Opelika,” the Slocumbs said in a press release about the event.
There will be an abundance of local, national and international talent. Among the most notable performers are Grammy Award-winner Dan Navarro, female folk trio Harpeth Rising and Lee County’s own in B.B. Palmer.
Three ticketing options are available through www.freshtix.com: Single Day Festival Pass for $55 plus tax, Two Day Festival Pass for $90 and Three Day VIP Festival Pass for $120.
