On the second Thursday of every month, the Heritage House Arts and Civic Center in East Brainerd hosts Songwriter's Night. Four singer-songwriters from the Chattanooga community put on an intimate acoustic house concert from 7-9 p.m. The next Songwriter's Night will be Oct. 10.
The evening progresses in rounds as each of the songwriters performs their original works (usually in acoustic fashion) and then enlightens the audience to the stories behind their inspiration.
The event is free to the public courtesy of the Chattanooga Songwriters Association and the Chattanooga Department of Youth and Family Development.
The event is hosted by the staff at the Heritage House with manager Chris Holley and arts assistant Kris Jones.
Those who come early from 6:30-7 p.m. will have the opportunity to mingle with the songwriters over a cup of coffee and light refreshments.
The musicians will be available afterwords to hear personal impressions of the concert, and their latest CD albums will also be available for purchase.
Lineups are sometimes subject to change based on artist availability and last-minute schedule changes.
