The second annual Songsmith Gathering, featuring special guest and musical legend David Crosby alongside an array of talent, is set for Saturday (May 18) at Brevard Music Center in Brevard.

The Songsmith Gathering highlights performers on two stages. Those performers include: Mipso, Hush Kids, Stand and Sway, Sarah Siskind, Suitcase Junket, Erin Rae, Ross Newell, 5J Barrow, and Warren Givens.

Aside from the music festival, aspiring songwriters participate in the Songsmith School, a three-day songwriting course facilitated by award winning singer-songwriters, Beth Wood and Sarah Siskind.

The Songsmith Gathering is a sister festival to the beloved Mountain Song Festival, which takes place at the end of summer over Labor Day weekend. Both festivals feature local, emerging and acclaimed artists and benefit the Cindy Platt Boys and Girls Club of Transylvania.
