Whitefish Songwriter Festival


Fans, Songwriters, Supporters

The Whitefish Songwriters Festival is a special “coming together” time for songwriters and you, our fans, to gather and share this incredible musical experience in our intimate mountain community. We’re really excited to enjoy the friendship, talent and togetherness of our fans and songwriters.

Thanks to your ongoing support over the last five years, ticket sales and sponsor contributions to the Red Lodge Songwriter Festivals have allowed us to contribute more than $40,000 in mission-based grants.  These grants have helped to fund music education in our local schools, fund the healing of wounded veterans and created a music scholarship at MSU-Billings in the name of Dave Kirby.

The health and safety of our fans, songwriters, volunteers, and community are our top concern. If the threat of Cornavirus is still with us, we will have to reevaluate our plans. However we are confident the advances in vaccine development, masking and social distancing will have a dramatic impact on the spread of the virus and we can once again resume our normal activities.

The Rocky Mountain Songwriter Festival Team: Jayne Laurence, Teresa Muhic, James Dean Hicks, Tera Reynolds, Cari Klepper, Carol Kirby and Mike Booth
