ALAMOSA — Some of the most talked about shows at Alamosa’s Society Hall venue in the last couple of years have been an amazing gathering of several of the most popular and up-and-coming Texas songwriters working today, called the Traveling Red River Songwriters Festival. Society Hall is thrilled to welcome them back Wednesday, January 24th, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door and are available at the Green Spot in Alamosa, or online at www.societyhall.org.
The Traveling Red River Songwriters (TRRS) are a collective of individual artists and writers that team up annually for a tour to Red River, NM, for The Red River Songwriters’ Festival, a festival founded by these writers in 2011. The members of the TRRS are Josh Grider, Susan Gibson, Walt Wilkins, Kelley Mickwee, Drew Kennedy, and Brandy Zdan. It’s become a bit of a tradition for the festival artists to do a show at Society Hall in Alamosa, before the festival begins on January 25th in Red River, New Mexico.
Between the five writers you will hear folk, country, soul, roots, rock and roll, and a whole lot of harmony singing. A short list of these artists’ accolades include Nashville publishing deals, a multi-platinum country single, international touring, and more than 25 albums released between them. Each of these artists has experienced a lot of success performing on their own, and can easily hold a room of listeners for an entire show, but there is something magical that happens when the group comes together that seems to make the sum greater than its parts – and that’s saying something!
