VAIL - Aspiring song-writers and music lovers will gather at Season of Song in Vail, Colorado, September 20 - 23, 2012, for a four-day event celebrating the power of song. Hear the inspiration behind the songs we all know and love. Twelve world-class songwriters will share the back-stories to some of the greatest hits of our generation, including "Peaceful, Easy Feeling," "I Hope you Dance," "The Wind Beneath my Wings," "Wichita Lineman," and "Best of my Love," just to name a few. Nightly performances will include sets by Dala, Elephant Revival, Beth Nielsen Chapman and David Wilcox.
Wilcox has sold more than 750,00 discs and has been writing songs for 30 years: "I write like my life depends on it," he said.
Wilcox believes that the right song at the right time changes people's lives.
"I have always sung the songs that kept me sane," he said. "I love music that moves me, but only if it moves me forward. I don't want to sing songs that stay stuck in the same old illusions that fooled me-before. I trust that when a song really moves me, it moves me because it is coming from a place I am going.
Other festival guests include: J.D. Souther, Michael Tomlinson and a special Garth Brooks tribute from the Bluebird Cafe writers.
Describing Season of Song, event founder Morris Lawrence said: "It's about the creation of the song. It's about the stories behind the song. It's about how songs inspire, connect, move, and motivate. It's all about the song."
Day passes and concert tickets are available for purchase now; pricing starts at $30. A limited number of VIP passes will be sold, providing admission to special VIP-only events.
