With several shows daily at each venue, the festival creates a golden opportunity for fellow writers to meet, mingle, & appreciate one another’s music.

The BoatHouse stage has become a favorite spot among festival attendees looking for an intimate writers round. This year, Parker & Parker hosted 2 rounds at The BoatHouse, playing alongside David Olney (songs recorded by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and featured on ABC’s “Nashville”), Webb Wilder (singer/songwriter/actor and guitarist who was recently inducted into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame), Sergio Webb (Nashville-based songwriter and guitarist recently named to Alternate Root’s “Top 21 Roots Guitar Players”), Steve Bogard (former NSAI president who has penned nine #1 songs), Buzz Cason (legendary rocker and co-writer on Hearts Bluff classic “Everlasting Love”), and Phil Madeira (singer/songwriter/producer/musician, with cuts by Emmylou Harris, The Civil Wars, Keb’ Mo’, Garth Brooks, and many more).
