For some, music should be heard at extreme volumes in large rooms with thousands of people. For others, a more intimate setting is preferred. A setting that strips things down to the simple combination of one guitar and a human voice. A smaller room where each word and nuance can be understood and appreciated. That's the the setting you'll find at Spotlight on Songwriters this Thursday evening (05.13.2021) at the Kemp Center For The Arts.

Members of the Wichita Falls Songwriter Circle will performing their own original works under the dome at the Kemp Center in a listening room presentation. It's a chance for the writers to share their music and the thoughts, meanings, and back stories that went into them with an audience in a laid back and casual atmosphere.
