The Mountain Stage NewSong Contest presented by Folk Alliance will host the finals to the 2008 international performing songwriter competition this Saturday, October 12, at the Cultural Center Theater in Charleston, WV.
Having competed and advanced on from regional rounds in the US and Canada, 12 finalists will get their final chance to wow the judges and win a slot on Mountain Stage radio show the very next night. The winner will be in good company too- performing on Mountain Stage will be Solas, Chris Knight, Dan Tyminski Band, and Patty Loveless. Here is an overview of the finalists as well as some info on potential winnings.
There are two-day passes available here so you can get in to the NewSong finals and Mountain Stage the following evening for around $15! What a bargain!
