The April 12 event, which takes place at The Townehouse Tavern, will be divided into two portions: acoustic acts, singer-songwriters and spoken-word artists will perform from 3-6 p.m., while bands and larger groups will perform from 7-11 p.m.

Participants must be registered by April 9.

Admission for spectators is $7 for NLFB members and $10 for non-members. The registration fee for performers is $25 per act, and includes a one-year membership to NLFB.

Performers are each assigned a 20-minute time slot (three or four songs).

The Townehouse Tavern will be hosting NLFB 2013 alum The 24th Street Wailers for their “Wicked” album release party after the competition with special pricing for those who plan to stay the whole day.

Those who are interested are asked to contact the NLFB office at 705-674-0422 or [email protected] to register. Registration forms are available on the NLFB website, and in the office.
