On the day many in the Capital Region will celebrate the arts on social media with the #518Day tag, The Egg presents an event featuring the art of songwriting. The annual local music showcase 518 SONGFEST returns on 518 Day to the Swyer Theater at The Egg, May 18 at 7:00pm.
Songfest is a unique live concert experience, in that the artists get to perform their songs, as well as talk a bit about their music and experiences as creators and musicians. Featured this year is Moriah Formica, a near Final 12 contestant on Season 13 of NBC’s The Voice. Other artists involved are 518 favorites Super 400, playing a rare acoustic set, and up-and-coming singer/songwriter Sydney Worthley, along with Sandy McKnight’s Pop-Clique and the event special guest, Grammy award-winning songwriter Julie Gold (“From A Distance”).
The event is a fundraiser for Exit 97.7 WEXT, and Columbia Arts Team (CAT), a non-profit arts company that showcases local original music and brings arts programs into area schools.
Tickets are on sale now at The Egg box office, (518) 473-1845 and online at theegg.org
