…IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SONG.

THE DRIPPING SPRINGS SONGWRITERS FESTIVAL WAS FOUNDED IN 2014 BY SONGWRITER/COMPOSER JIM HALFPENNY, BOOKKEEPER LAURIE HALFPENNY, AND BREWER/BUSINESSMAN DAVE NIEMEYER.

Their shared concept for the event was to create a premier performance and exposure opportunity for up-and-coming songwriters from around the world, while providing their audiences with a ticket-free 3-day weekend of amazing songs and the people and stories behind them. The DSSF was produced under the loving guidance of Laurie, Jim and Dave from 2014 through 2019, introducing the Dripping Springs community to hundreds of talented emerging songwriters and dozens of top-name performers.

In the spring of 2020 the Dripping Springs Visitors Bureau (Destination Dripping Springs), the organization devoted to promoting tourism in the Dripping Springs area, acquired the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival and continues to produce the event and offer people the up-close and personal chance to see, hear, and get to know some very talented performers who have a deep love of the art of songwriting.

You are invited to the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country to come and enjoy an exciting weekend of phenomenal singer/songwriter showcases. Our annual event is an “industry-opposite” change from the typical “Austin-palooza-music-fest” that everyone is familiar with. We’re offering people the up-close and personal chance to see, hear, and get to know some very talented performers who have a deep love of the art of songwriting. In its essence, the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival is all about finely-crafted SONGS, and the talented folks who have written them.

Highlighted by a list of esteemed local and national talent, our festival features more than 30 shows a day. Audiences are treated to a wide variety of amazing songs and the people and stories behind them as groups of local, national and international songwriters perform “in-the-round”, Nashville-style.

Event stages are hosted by Dripping Springs’ most popular live music venues: The Barber Shop Bar, Mazama Coffee Company, Acopon Brewing Company, Sidecar Tasting Room, Hudson’s On Mercer Street, The Courtyard at the Warehouse District and Dog 'N' Bone all located within safe, easy walking distance of each other in historic downtown Dripping Springs. These performances are absolutely FREE for everyone and registration will be required! Complimentary shuttle service between Venues runs throughout the event.
