The 33rd Annual Frank Brown International Songwriters' Festival will be held November 9-19, 2017. The festival is an opportunity for songwriters and musicians from all over the world to have their songs heard and for the public to enjoy the songs they know performed by the writers who created them. During this 11 day festival, concerts featuring Grammy Award winning songwriters and the up and coming stars of tomorrow will be held on the beautiful Gulf Coast including Pensacola and Perdido Key, Florida and Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama.
During this festival, Grammy Award winning songwriters and the up and coming stars of tomorrow come into the spotlight to perform original songs in multiple locations in beautiful Perdido Key and Pensacola, Florida and Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama. Festival attendees enjoy an up close and personal concert experience and are often able to learn the stories behind the songs as told by the original author. Venues of all kinds welcome the nearly 200 songwriters that come from around the country and around the world. Whether you are looking for a "listening room" experience, a pleasant dinner and music venue, a family friendly musical adventure or a gritty roadhouse, FBISF has a place for you. Most venues are free to attend, a few charge a modest cover at the door.
The Frank Brown Songwriters' Festival has been referred to as the largest gathering of SONGWRITERS' at one time anywhere in the world. The Southeast Tourism Society has named Frank Brown International Songwriters' Festival one of the top 20 events in the Southeast. And why on earth would you want to miss an event like this…and remember, fall on the Gulf Coast is one of the most comfortable seasons of the year! Just bring a sweater or a sweatshirt for the nighttime, and the days will be perfectly comfortable even though the music will most definitely be HOT!
New songwriters are being added every week so keep checking back to see who's going to be on hand and get a little acquainted with them before the festival on the "Who's Playing" link, at fbisf.com.
