This year's 2010 Key West Songwriters' Festival is sure to be a hit and Key West Historic Inns is gearing up for a weekend of music and fun; rooms are filling up quick for the weekend
Online PR News – 07-April-2010 – – If you love music and you love the atmosphere of a tropical island paradise, the Better Angels Music Key West Songwriters Festival is the place to be on the last weekend of April. In its 15th year, the festival has become one of the hottest events in Key West Florida and music enthusiasts and Key West lovers have been booking Key West hotels and inns well in advance for this one-of-a-kind music festival.
Key West Historic Inns, the leading center for information and reservations for top downtown Key West inns, hotels, and guesthouses, says that while the majority of their rooms are already reserved for the weekend, travelers looking to stay in a historic downtown Key West hotel during the festival should call the center to see what rooms are left.
The Key West Songwriters Festival is a five-day event featuring over 100 songwriters from all over the country playing at a variety of settings from Key West bars, beaches, and outdoor resort areas. Over 20 of the shows throughout the festival are completely free of charge.
The musical focus of the festival is songwriters who write and perform their own music, much in the vein of a folk music festival with the music not limited to just folk acts. While the festival has not gained the national renown of other Key West festivals such as October's Fantasy Fest or November's Parrothead convention, the Songwriters' Festival has a dedicated following that pack Key West hotels for the duration of the festival.
"It's the most unassuming of events down here but the people who know about it are die-hard about it," says Key West Historic Inns office manger Rod Miller. "We have a lot of properties and honestly we have to dig to find the rooms that we still have available."
Travelers who are still looking to book a downtown hotel in Key West still have options available in places such well-known properties as the Wicker House, the Douglas House, and the Southernmost House. But rooms are going fast, reports Key West Historic Inns. To reserve a room during the festival or to find out more information on Key West hotels and Key West inn properties for other times of the year, call the Key West Historic Inns at 1-877-243-2378.
