In the city recently named "The Acoustic Music Mecca of the World You Need To Visit" by Newsweek, Baton Rouge launches a new concert series showcasing singers and songwriters. The Singer Songwriter Concert Series is 15 weeks of concerts every Sunday night at The Basin Music Hall, beginning February 16, 2020. Each week, three singers and songwriters will be featured as well as a new guest host. Admission is free and around 100 exclusive patron spots are available in The Basin each show at a first-arrive, first-enter basis. However, it will be broadcasted live courtesy of WFLT on television and the station's mobile app. The acts will perform for your vote with only the most popular moving on the finals later in the series. The series is put on by 225 Live Events and more information can be found on their website.
