Call for Songs: Songwriters Invited To Enter Santa Fe River Songwriting Contest

Songwriters are invited to enter a song writing contest and help raise money for a good cause—our drinking water—by participating in the 7th annual Santa FeRiverfest, being held April 9, 2017.

Original song submissions about the Santa Fe River are due March 1, 2017. Our Santa Fe River, Inc. (OSFR), a non-profit organization working to protect the aquifer, springs and waters, is sponsoring the songwriting contest and music festival. It will be held at Rum 138, located west of High Springs (corner of C.R. 138 and Rum Island Terrace), and hosted by WKTK host Storm Roberts.

Songwriters should submit a MP3 about the Santa Re River no later than March 1, 2017 to Judges will look for originality, quality of lyrics, melody and performance. The finalists will take the stage during the afternoon and will have an opportunity to win the $300 first place prize. Each finalist will receive a professional video of their performance, which also will be placed on YouTube.
