Three days of great music and great people…what more could you want? The Fourth Annual PINEYFEST Songwriters Weekend will be held Thursday through Saturday, July 28-30 at MOLLY’S PLACE, located on the Square in downtown Centerville, TN.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings there will be live...and very lively music from 7-10 pm at MOLLY’S PLACE as songwriters perform their own material. Writers will range from seasoned pros with years of hits & road touring under their belts to newcomers yet to be discovered. Numerous guest writers and artists will also be performing.

Friday and Saturday afternoons from 1-5 will include Music Business Sessions.
o Bobbie Gallup…head perpetrator and honcho of Gallup ‘N Dawg Music will provide a crash course in how to get the most and best experience out of a trip to Nashville…for all those out-of-town songwriters who can only visit on rare occasions. She will talk about those unwritten rules and expectations; where to go for advice and assistance; how to set up appointments and cowriting sessions; plus the skinny on open mics, performance venues and showcasing.

o Bill Littleton - Expanding the Guitar as Cowriter

o Barbara Cloyd, hit songwriter (I Guess You Had To Be There - #1 for Lorrie Morgan) and songwriting consultant, who auditions and books talent for Nashville's world-famous Bluebird Cafe, will be listening and offering constructive critiques to help writers understand what works and doesn't work in their songs. Writers can bring cds or perform live.

o Jim Troutner, owner of Troutner Music Productions will present a session on musical arrangement for the non-musician…or how to handle the voice in your head if you don’t sing or play an instrument. Jim is the former Music Director of the choral group, UP WITH PEOPLE which performed at Super Bowl Halftime Shows, Olympic Festivals, and venues across the US and around the world.

o Ed Cantwell, former owner of Silver Tongue Music, will discuss the ins and outs of home studios…from set up to getting the most out of recording. If it has strings….Ed can play it! He knows whereof he speaks.
