The annual local music showcase 518 SongFest is returning to The Egg’s Swyer Theatre to celebrate the art of songwriting at 7pm on Friday, May 18. The SongFest is a unique live concert experience, in that the artists get to perform their songs, in addition to talking a bit about their music and their creative process.
The featured performer at this year’s feat is Moriah Formica, the Local 518 high school contestant on Season 13 of NBC-TV’s “The Voice.” Other artists slated to perform include Super 400 (playing a rare acoustic set), Sandy McKnight’s Pop-Clique, up-and-coming singer-songwriter Sydney Worthley and the Grammy Award-winning songwriter Julie Gold.
Tickets are on sale now, priced at $9.77, $15 & $20. The fest is a fundraiser for Exit 97.7 WEXT-FM and and Columbia Arts Team.
