Susquehanna Folk's...

Songwriting Contest

Susquehanna Folk's Songwriting Contest needs a sponsor. Please pass the word around! If you know someone (or if you are someone) who would be willing to donate $200 in exchange for some friendly publicity, please contact us.

The Songwriting Contest has become a fun tradition for local musicians. We've heard a lot of great new material from these talented folks, and we've been proud to share the best of it with our audiences here in Central Pennsylvania.

A panel of judges selects three finalists from all entries, and those finalists perform their songs for the audience at a SFMS Coffee House. First, second and third prizes are awarded based on audience vote. We have always been impressed by the creativity and musicianship of our local songsmiths.

Thanks for supporting local music!
