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.

Capacity is limited for this one-time concert on September 22nd to 400 attendees at The Buddy Holly Hall.
