West Michigan Songwriter's Festival

AUGUST 26th-27th



The second annual West Michigan Songwriter’s Festival kicks off August 26-27 2022. The brainchild of local Edward Jones financial advisor, songwriter, and musician Dan Terry, and Nashville songwriter, educator Steve Leslie, the festival features hit songwriters from Nashville playing the songs they wrote that you heard on the radio! Songs recorded by Alan Jackson, Lee Ann Womack, Luke Bryan, Reba McEntire, George Strait, Darius Rucker, Trisha Yearwood, Little Big Town, and many others!


In conjunction with two nights of performances, a free songwriting workshop will be offered by Steve Leslie.


The West Michigan Songwriter’s Festival is raising awareness of songwriting as an art form, songwriters as artists, and songwriting as a craft that everyone can learn to appreciate. The mission of the festival is to establish a foundation with the goal of providing educational scholarships for children.

With the purchase of a ticket, you will have access to one night of performances, as well as the songwriting workshop. Two drink tickets will be provided per person ages 21+. No outside alcohol or cigarettes of any type.

The performances will be Friday, August 26th from 7pm-9pm and Saturday, August 27th from 7pm-9pm. The songwriting workshop will be Saturday, August 27th from 1pm-3pm. Tickets are $25 for each night of performances.

10. West Michigan Songwriters Festival at Blythfield Country Club (Sept. 10-11) – Granted, this really wasn’t a “festival” but a first-year event that’s liable to grow as organizer Daniel Terry builds his vision for celebrating top-notch tunesmithing. The rapport, humor and awesome forte exhibited by the four Nashville songwriters on this bill made this a diminutive-but-inspiring event to remember.
