Day by Day Scenario
Imagine You're At The Fest: A Day By Day Account
It's several music happenings in one! Find your place in the mix.... It's part live original music performances, part teaching conference, part networking opportunity and part gathering of friends. The live shows, education and Open House are concurrently running events. Attendees can take in all or parts and "Play it by ear!"
Songwriters & singer songwriters of all genres converge and share their original music on multiple stages and Open Sing Rings.
Typical First Day

It's Friday Noon and we start Day 1 off with the Ask A Pro where you bring your questions and we answer them. Talk about what you want to talk about. Noon -6 PM
Friday afternoon about Noon we begin firing off the stages.
It's time to begin the non stop original tunes till Sunday midnight!

Others stop by the Fest Info booth and drop off a copy of your songs in the specially marked "Drop Box" or displaying their CD's at the Writer's Table.

Noon and we begin a special Christian Music Segment at a designated stage till ?.
At Noon all the stages begin firing back up and everything hums along as usual. Some of the late-niter's begin straggling in and the party continues. Go with the flow, 12 more hours to go.
Featured and regular writer segments continue.
It's 6PM, if anyone wants to get married at the Fest then this is the time we do it. The bride and groom read a poem or play a special tune to each other on stage, kiss and then head off to a reception nearby. Don't worry. I think there will be plenty of live entertainment.
In the evening about 8 PM we start winding down the other stages and Southern Fried Fest Heads start gravitating toward the main stage as we get ready to Jam till midnight.
Last minute writers come to the Info Booth Publisher Drop Box.
Songs and laughter pierce the final hours on the Row as it has been for history. Having gotten our musical fill, we yearn no more. Little elves clear the row of gear, stages, and by the next day it's like we never existed.
