Muddy Creek Songwriters Festival features 52 performers on April 8-9

If you’re a fan of singer/songwriters or men and women and their guitars as my husband likes to call them, then you won’t want to miss the Muddy Creek Songwriters Festival set for Saturday, April 8, and Sunday, April 9, in historic Bethania, North Carolina. Tickets are a bargain and range from $12 to $22 in advance and $15 to $25 at the door.

I have had the pleasure of hearing a number of these uber talented artists perform at Muddy Creek over the past few months including Sam Tayloe, Tyler Nail, Abigail Dowd and Leah Shaw, and trust me when I say you don’t want to miss this opportunity.

If you are feeling a little cash poor, head over to the Muddy Creek Cafe where you can find more talent, including Seth Williams and Doug Davis, playing for tips or the Alpha Chapel Stage across the street for free concerts sponsored by the North Carolina Songwriters Co-op. All shows welcome all ages.
