Writers on the Storm: Local Songwriter Showcase
Date & TimeJune 8, 2020
Writers on the Storm: South Lake Tahoe Songwriters is a community of local singer-songwriters committed to regularly creating and performing original music around Tahoe and beyond. This Showcase gives the songwriters the opportunity to perform the new songs we’ve written throughout the year. The show is ‘songwriters in the round’ format. The members range in experience – some are writing music for the first time and others are local professional musicians such as Sierra Gypsies founders Jennifer Plevel and Brian Garret and longtime local performer Doug Schwartz. Writers on the Storm’s mission is to make Lake Tahoe the music capital of the West – think Nashville on skis! Writers on the Storm is a free gathering and profits from the yearly showcase go back to the artists and to creating promotional materials.
