    Those of you not already familiar with Michelle Malone should really check her out. In my opinion she is sort of what might happen if you crossed Bonnie Raitt with Chrissie Hynde.

    You can listen to her here

    Jennifer-

    I have a good friend down in Miami that writes and performs some pretty good music. I told him about the Festival and he wants to come up and play where he can. Who and how does he need to contact? Think he's got some stuff that people would really like. Very acoustic stuff and a very good guy.

    Hey mvelotas,

    I'm certain your friend would make a great addition to the roster. However, this year is already packed full of songwriters, and we are not accepting any more to the list.

    Please have him get in touch with me at jennifer@30ASongwritersFestival.com so he can keep in touch regarding the 2nd annual 30A Songwriters Festival.

    Thanks for asking!

    Check out the 2010 official schedule on our facebook fan page. It will also be up on our website www.30asongwritersfestival.com by the end of the day!

    Love my tshirts and I'm sure that the peeps that get them for Christmas love them too!

    Next purchase is tickets, then sit down and study the schedule. Some hard decisions will have to be made-
