Songwriters Reunion at Music in the Park and Great Outdoors
Over the past seven years, dozens of musicians have shared their original songs about the Santa Fe River in a competition hosted each year by the nonprofit environmental group, Our Santa Fe River, Inc. (OSFR). The annual competition brings regional songwriters and music lovers from around the state to celebrate and learn about a special spring-fed river. This year, several previous contest winners and select contestants will be showcased at two locations in downtown High Springs on Sunday, March 18.
From 1 to 3:30 p.m., March’s Music in the Park concert will put the spotlight on the OSFR Songwriters’ Reunion to promote both live local music and the preservation of our local waters. They also will share their musical talent at Great Outdoors Restaurant from 4 to 7 p.m. There is no charge for either event. These events and others are part of RiverFest 2018, a series of “explore, learn and play” activities hosted by OSFR.
The reunion showcase on Sunday paves the way for the premier event, the 8th Annual OSFR Songwriters Contest, to be held the following Sunday, March 25, from 1 to 7 p.m. at Rum 138, located at 2070 Southwest County Road 138 in Fort White.
Original song submissions about the Santa Fe River are due for that event on March 1. This annual fundraising event offers music, food and drink and an afternoon of family fun. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door, with no charge for children 12 and under.
Tickets to all RiverFest events, which include educational plant hikes, can be purchased here.
