LEPAA Announces 3rd Annual Buddy Holly Songwriters Showcase

Lubbock Entertainment and Performing Arts Association (LEPAA) announced that tickets are on sale for the Buddy Holly Songwriters Showcase at The Buddy Holly Hall in the Crickets Theater on September 22, 2023. General admission tickets are $25 and VIP tickets are $40. Proceeds from the Songwriters Showcase help fund next year’s retreat. A VIP ticket includes seating in front two rows, premium parking, an artist meet and greet, and a signed poster.

The week-long songwriter’s retreat was created in 2019. Each day the artists break up into small groups to collaborate with mentors and work through the creative process of songwriting. Each evening, the groups come back together and share the songs written during the day. LEPAA hosts 20-30 songwriters from around the world, including the UK, New Zealand, and Canada, in addition to professional mentors.

A mentor works with 2-3 songwriters for each master class, rotating the mentors and songwriting groups each day. This process provides a variety of training and inspiration each day for the songwriters. The Songwriters Showcase concert wraps up the week-long retreat. Capacity is limited for this one-time concert on September 22nd to 400 attendees at The Buddy Holly Hall.
