35th Annual Songwriter’s Showcase set for Port Aransas


On Monday, local musicians will gather in the courtyard of the historic Tarpon Inn (200 E. Cotter Ave. in Port Aransas) for the 35th Annual Songwriter’s Showcase.

This south Texas tradition is a fundraiser for the Port Aransas Art Center, and a modest $5 gate fee will allow those who attend to listen to and interact with local musicians.

Many talented songwriters will be performing their original music in 15-minute sets beginning at 6 p.m. and continuing on until 10 p.m. In addition to emcee Ronnie Narmour, this year’s list will include:

  • Bill Averbach
  • Hamp Brockman & Janet Drew
  • Guy Le Roux
  • James Derkits
  • Ty Dietz
  • Garrett Wieland & David King
  • Kelley Mickwee
  • Woodie Lawson
  • Elvin “Preecher” Williams
  • Mike Williams
  • Jered Clark
  • Billy Snipes

Due to TABC regulations, no coolers or alcohol may be brought into the courtyard. However, beer, wine and festival-type food will be available for purchase.
