On Friday, November 17, ECM Collective will return home to Bethlehem, PA to present Nashville Meets Bethlehem: An All-Local, Nashville-Style Songwriter Night at SteelStacks.
This first-of-its-kind experience, presented in conjunction with the Your Next Favorite Band podcast and ArtsQuest, will feature two Nashville-style songwriter’s rounds featuring four acts apiece. Each artist will take turns performing acoustic versions of their original songs (and sharing the stories behind them). This intimate setting allows for interaction between the artists themselves, as well as the audience, creating an experience rooted in connection and community.
Our first hometown show in five years is coming to Bethlehem, PA this Friday, November 17. That’s when we’ll team up with Your Next Favorite Band to present Nashville Meets Bethlehem: An All-Local, Nashville-Style Songwriter Night at SteelStacks, sponsored by Tuk Business & Entertainment Law.
As the big night approaches, we teamed up with Your Next Favorite Band over the past few weeks to interview ALL EIGHT artists on the lineup — Roi and the Secret People, Greg Adams of TIOGA, Carly Comando of Slingshot Dakota, Chelsea Mitchell of Dirty Dollhouse, The Beautiful Distortion, Bronte Fall, Bobby Siegfried of Chasing Daylight, and Billy Bauer of Billy Bauer Band.
As announced just a few days ago, NashLive! will be taking over Nashville’s iconic The Listening Room Cafe on Monday, October 3 with a special writers round event, featuring songwriters from here in Nashville — and beyond.
We couldn’t wait any longer. Let’s introduce you to the four songwriters who will join us in front of The Listening Room’s brick wall backdrop!
Vacation was fun, and we do have a pile of emails to dig through upon our return. Not to mention, we have some other features and reviews hanging out there that we plan to get to this week.
In the meantime — and before we completely, willingly say goodbye to summer — we want to re-visit August one last time with some of the most popular tracks that comprised our UMC20 playlists throughout the month. Give yourself a listen to these while we take a chance to catch up!
