South Louisiana Songwriters Festival and Workshop (SOLO)

May 19-24, 2020
Various Lafayette Locations

The South Louisiana Songwriters Festival and Workshop (SOLO) is a unique event that combines the intimate, intensive, and creative songwriting process with a public-facing festival. Writers will collaborate for four days, then debut their creations over the next two days of the festival. In addition to playing and singing these works, artists will let the audience in on their processes, thoughts, and inspirations. SOLO is a true behind-the-scenes look at the “stories behind the stories.” SOLO festival will take place on six stages between two venues-The Blue Moon Saloon and Warehouse 535 in Downtown Lafayette.
