97 South Song Sessions is a music performance event located in Penticton in British Columbia’s picturesque Okanagan Valley and growing international wine destination region. Shows feature award winning, multi-genre Songwriters and Recording Artists sharing the stage ‘in the round’, entertaining the audience with tales of the creative journey that inspired their hit songs which they perform throughout the evening. The result is an intimate show that is variously touching and humorous, and certainly unforgettable. The songwriter festival’s inaugural run in August 2019 was a success and included hit songwriters such as Grammy winner, Tim Nichols (Nashville), Hall of Famer, Bob DiPiero (Nashville) and rising Canadian star, Jessica Mitchell. The event is slated to grow into a larger festival in 2020, that includes various venues and a larger, multi-genre songwriter contingent from Canada and the U.S.
