Artistry Amplified: Songwriters’ Showcase heading to Capitol Theatre!

LAURENS, S.C. – Attention all local musicians, singers, artists, and enthusiasts! Mark your calendars for two extraordinary evenings on Friday, February 16, 2024, and Saturday, February 17, 2024, at 7:30 pm, as the City of Laurens proudly presents Homegrown: Live at the Capitol Theatre, a remarkable showcase celebrating music, art, and craftsmanship.

The historic Capitol Theatre, built in 1915 in Laurens, South Carolina, sets the stage for local performers to showcase their talents and share their original compositions through live performances steeped in storytelling.

After each night's performances, an interactive applause session will empower the audience to elevate an act through their cheers, measured by a decibel meter. This engagement will determine the recipient of the Audience Engagement Award for that particular night, who will receive a grand prize of $500. Additionally, each night's award winner will secure a paid opportunity to open for the headliner at Freedom Fest 2024.

Alongside the performances, the theatre's lobby will transform into a vibrant marketplace hosting booths where local artists, artisans, and craftspeople can display and sell their creations.

Signing up is easy! Visit the event website at to submit your application. But don't delay—sign-ups close on Sunday, December 31st. Each accepted entry into the showcase will receive an honorarium of $200, disbursed within three (3) weeks after the event. The lineup will be gradually revealed, starting January 2024, on the Road to Homegrown Blog and Social Platforms,

“The Capitol Theatre is the perfect venue for music enthusiasts to delve into our region’s vibrant music scene,” remarks Hunter Holmes, event organizer and esteemed local folk musician. “Homegrown presents an unparalleled chance for performers to gain well-deserved recognition, claim prizes, and elevate their profiles.
