2020 Songwriter Finalists - Great River Contest

Songa was a finalist in the Great River Folk Festival Songwriting Contest with the song “Love Heeds the Call.” We loved the opportunity to create new videos to submit and to be introduced to other creative songwriters and folk artists. At the end of the contest, we were voted the “Fan Favorite,” and we would like to thank our friends and fans for all of their support!

“On the bus after the Eau Claire show Thursday night. A visit from my friend Mario Friedel and his wife, Sherry. Mario and I were band mates in the group, White Duck back in ‘71! Great to see you, brother. You haven’t changed a bit in 48 years!”
