Sandy Lee Watkins Songfest cancelled

Local News

HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) Sandy Lee Songwriters Festival board and committee members are sad to announce they are cancelling this year’s event.

The Songfest is held every summer in downtown Henderson. Organizers say since audience members are normally seated nearly shoulder to shoulder, that exceeds Gov. Andy Beshear’s guidance on mass gatherings and social distancing.

Susie Watkins, Songfest Co-Chair said, “We love the Songfest, but our first priority is the safety of the writers, audience, and crew. We will begin to plan the 2021 festival as soon as we are able and work to make it the best one yet!”        

The 2021 Sandy Lee Watkins Songwriters is scheduled for July 28th through July 31st 2021.
