UPDATE: Sandy Lee Watkins Songwriters Festival
Sandy Lee Watkins Songwriters Festival is an annual event in Henderson, KY where live music introduces crowds to the faces, voices and stories behind the songs. It has become an opportunity for songwriters and musicians from all over the world to have their songs heard and likewise for the public to hear the songs they know performed by the hit-making writers who created them. The talent of these songwriters will captivate you more than the famous name artist singing themselves, because you hear the stories behind the song!
Henderson was home to Kerry Kurt Phillips a modern day famous musician coming out of Henderson who helped create a large body of work for the country music industry. This is an opportunity to celebrate him now and this amazing and fun art form while raising funds for a great cause….furthering music education for the youth and the musicians/artists of tomorrow through RiverBend Academy.
We anticipate this becoming another great festival in Henderson and have over 20 songwriters committed to this years event. Come out and enjoy the storytellin’ in the 42420!
