Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival has partnered for the ninth consecutive year with Watkins College of Art, Design & Film for its festival artwork. Select Watkins students competed to create a concept that captured the essence of the event, and this year, Chris Robertson‘s design has been chosen to represent all Tin Pan South marketing, passes, posters and banners.
The competing students were all enrolled in department chair Dan Brawner’s Illustration I class. Robertson is an artist and writer from Alabama now living in Nashville. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the University of Alabama and is a junior in Graphic Design at Watkins.
The popular Tin Pan South Fast Access Passes are scheduled to go on sale at tinpansouth.com on Tuesday, March 8 at 10 a.m. Information about venues, lineups, schedules and more will also be available on the website. Updates can also be found on the Tin Pan South Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.
Produced by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), Tin Pan South is the world’s largest all-songwriter festival. Last year, close to 350 talented songwriters performed 92 shows at 10 of Nashville’s top music venues. Thousands of music fans attend the event annually to hear songwriters tell stories behind hit songs they have written and perform the songs as they were originally composed.
Regions Bank returns for the ninth year as the presenting sponsor of the event. Additional sponsors include ASCAP, BMI, Ford, News Channel 5 (official broadcast sponsor), ole, SESAC, Southwest Airlines (official airline sponsor), Vident Financial, and Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp.
