The 2017 518 Songfest will also showcase local artists, The Sea The Sea, and Girl Blue, as well as actor, television host, author and singer-songwriter John Davidson and veteran songwriter Sandy McKnight.
Along with performing, they will also be interviewed about their songwriting process, motivation, and experiences, by Exit 97.7 WEXT on-air personality Dave Michaels and Andy Gregory, host of The Local 518 Show on Exit 97.7 WEXT.
