Here are videos of the first finalist to play at the 2020 Suwannee Riverkeeper Songwriting Contest: Kathy Lou Gilman from Kingsland, Georgia, with her song, “My Love, My Suwannee.”
The organizing committee is all ears for suggestions for headliners and judges for this year’s Contest, which will be Saturday, August 21, 2021, at the same location, Turner Center Art Park, Valdosta, Georgia. We will start accepting songs on April First: no fooling!
