SHERIDAN — Some of Wyoming’s top singer-songwriters, including a local Sheridanite, will join forces on Saturday to provide a day full of entertainment for Facebook viewers.
Saturday’s event, a part of the “HomeFest” launched by the Wyoming Singer-Songwriter Competition, will feature performances by 11 artists and can be seen at the Singer-Songwriter Competition’s Facebook page, Wyoming Singer-Songwriters.
Viewers will also hear performances of songs written by Wyoming performers to commemorate the coronavirus quarantine as part of the Singer-Songwriter Competition’s “LockDown Challenge.”
Twenty songs have been submitted for judging by a panel of musicians, and the top three will be announced during Saturday’s show, wrapping up five hours of live music.
“HomeFest” was started early in the pandemic as a way to share music with people who were largely confined to their homes. Every week, four performers played for 30 to 40 minutes each in shows broadcast on the Singer-Songwriter Competition’s Facebook page.
Saturday’s show will feature 11 artists who will begin playing at 3 p.m. and wrap up at 8 p.m., when the winners of the top songs in the Lockdown Challenge will be announced and performed.
All of the entries in the LockDown Challenge can be viewed on YouTube: youtube.com/watch?v=mPmDbSWlvVM&list=PLK6SI6-HMb-TRKNQOpI8BGoVCNZxHgThZ
