The Silver Anniversary of The Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival has bumped the scheduled show count up to triple digits. For the first time in the event’s 25-year history, fans will have the opportunity to choose between over 350 songwriters performing at a record 100 shows at ten of Nashville’s top venues March 28 through April 1, 2017. 3rd & Lindsley has a full slate of 10 shows, and Blue Bar, The Bluebird Cafe, The Country, Commodore Grille, Douglas Corner, Hard Rock Cafe, the Listening Room Cafe, Station Inn and Whiskey Rhythm are back to present nightly shows.

Produced by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), Tin Pan South reigns as the world’s largest all-songwriter festival. Regions Bank returns for the tenth year as the presenting sponsor of the Festival.

‘All Show’ passes available

Planning to go to some of the shows? First stop: www.tinpansouth.com where you can buy passes for the entire festival. The price is $115.00 for NSAI members and $125.00 for non-members. Note that passes cannot be purchased by phone and must be picked up at the NSAI office as they will not be mailed out.

In addition to passes, ‘at-the-door’ admissions will be available and attendees can take their places in the Cash Line at each venue. Those in line will be admitted as space permits after Fast Access Pass holders are admitted. Shows at the Bluebird Café always sell out so getting there early is ‘a must!’

There are some other important ticketing details, so when you get to the website, click on the ‘Ticket Info’ button to be sure you are aware of the important stuff. Lineups for individual shows will be updated at the website, too. Tin Pan South is the best possible way to see and hear the incredibly talented writers behind the hits and they frequently share the stories behind the songs. If you’re a songwriter – or just fascinated by the music – Tin Pan South is a must!
