Last weekend, the DMI had some great representation at the 7th Annual Mississippi Songwriters’ Festival (September 15-18) in Ocean Springs, MS.  Four DMI students (Brennan Barham, Kailey Mathis, Carrie Lynn Stanford and Jessica Faith Wishard) and one professor (Tricia Walker) made the trek to the coast for the festival.

The four students played “in a round” together, performing their original songs and lending their voices and instruments on each others’ songs.  They performed three sets throughout the weekend: one on Friday night, the youth showcase on Saturday, and a late show on Saturday night.  Tricia Walker rocked the house on Friday night with Blue Mother Tupelo, and then again on Saturday with Sean Gasaway and Michael Garvin (Grammy Nominee with over 100 chart hits, including “Waiting For Tonight,” a hit for Jennifer Lopez).

The Mississippi Songwriter’s Festival originated as a way to recognize and celebrate the works of songwriters and includes local, regional, and national talent. Several venues in downtown Ocean Springs host numerous shows each day, during which songwriters describe and perform their songs onstage before a captive audience.  Since its inception in September of 2010, the festival has grown to include local, regional, and national talent, as well as 15-20 professional songwriters.
