An Invitation to Songwriters: Inspire someone with your musical story this year at Wild Goose 2016!

By March 9, 2016Goose News

In the spirit of this year’s Wild Goose Festival theme, Story!, we invite you to submit an original song to the Wild Goose Songwriting Contest.

Be a part of the collective exploration of heart and soul asking: What are our shared narratives? How have they shaped us – in our joy and in our suffering? How do we challenge the destructive narratives in the presence of a growing wave of fear, violence, and control? Can one person’s story of success be another’s story of oppression? How do we see the truth in the mash-up? Help us think beyond limits and tap into what Richard Rohr described as “ too big and too deep to be merely ‘understood’ or taught.”

Submissions will be accepted through April 30th. The winners will be announced by June 30th and will perform at the festival (July 7th-10th) in Hot Springs, NC with Phil Madeira hosting.  Categories for submission include Gospel, Americana, Pop, and General.

Guitar-LogoGrand Prize is a lovely Republic 317 mahogany Parlor Resonator guitar presented to the winning songwriter at the Goose this summer.
