The 24th edition of the Tin Roof Cantina Acoustic Showdown continues to bring Atlanta’s emerging artists to the stage. Every Monday for 8 weeks, a dozen or so singer/songwriters showcase their talent, network with other artists, gain new fans and compete for a chance to win a share of over $14,000 in prizes.
Each week one singer/songwriter moves on to the grand finale and at least one runner-up to the semi-finals. This week’s performers were:
- Tennesse John McCleskey
- Wein Solo
- Jacob Pline
- Billy Simons
- Kayla James
- Sneakin’ Creek
- Drivin’ 75
- William James Bodnar
- Tyler Jarvis
- Mary Kate Farmer
- Rob Vincent & The Accents
To select the winner the Tin Roof Acoustic Showdown team received a vote for two performers from the fans. Each performer also got to select two other performers as their favorites. Peer voting counted for 5 points and fan votes for 1 point.
