The Birthplace of Country Music is thrilled to announce that East Tennessee native and renowned songwriter Ed Snodderly will be joining us as a songwriting camp instructor! Snodderly is a well-known educator, performer, songwriter, actor and co-owner of one of the longest running music venues in the country, The Down Home in Johnson City, Tennessee. The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville honored him by inscribing a verse of his song, “The Diamond Stream,” upon the wall in their Hall of Honor. Ed teaches dobro and guitar for ETSU’s Old Time program and the department’s very successful songwriting class. This is an amazing opportunity to learn from one of the most respected and original songwriters of our region.
