Danny Frank & The Smoky Gold Songwriter Showcase

March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$15 – $20

Presenting some of the finest northland music makers, Danny Frank & The Smoky Gold will host their 3rd Annual Songwriter Showcase at 7 pm Saturday, March 23 on the beautiful Sacred Heart Music Center altar stage.

This one-time-only event features three singer-songwriters performing a solo set of their original music for a live audience, discussing the craft of songwriting, and sharing stories that inspire their music. Danny Frank & The Smoky Gold will conclude the night with a full band performance.

2024 featured artists are: Shane Nelson, Hannah Rey and Skarlett Woods.

Frank said the inspiration for this event emerged in part by reflecting on his own journey as a singer songwriter, and in part through his admiration of the multitude of gifted songwriters and performers in the Twin Ports area.

“Songwriting lives at the heart of all music, regardless of genre or instrumentation. It is a process of self-reflection and storytelling mixed with creative melodic expression,” said Frank. “I have always been amazed at the sheer number of musicians in the Duluth area who write and perform their own original music. Many of these people are my dear friends, and comprise a beautiful, passionate, and supportive community. My vision for this event is to showcase a small fraction of that talent by highlighting some singer-songwriters who are pillars of this community, and who have inspired my own craft.”
