Each evening of SIP NAPA features two different Bluebird Cafe style “in the round” performances featuring three songwriters on stage swapping stories and songs. Nightly shows run from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and include not only world-class musical performances, but also each winery’s world-class wine paired perfectly with hearty hors d’oeuvres.

A limited number of tickets are still available and can be purchased at SongwritersInParadise.com.

SIP NAPA began as a musical friendship between SIP’s Patrick Davis and Silver Oak Cellars owner David Duncan. Patrick and David, who met over a decade ago through a mutual connection in Music City, got together and played guitar, wrote songs and drank wine whenever David was in Nashville or Patrick was away. in Napa. “Bringing Songwriters In Paradise to Wine Country was just building on a friendship between wine and music that has existed for many years already,” Patrick said.

Songwriters In Paradise is a boutique, unique and highly exclusive music festival series that features some of the world’s most gifted singer-songwriters performing in some of the world’s most awe-inspiring destinations. SIP was created in 2013 when accomplished Nashville singer-songwriter Patrick Davis brought together some of his talented songwriter friends for a weekend of performances on the small Bahamian island of Hope Town and From those rather humble beginnings, SIP has grown into an annual music SOLD OUT. and lifestyle events in Napa, Cabo, Healdsburg and the aforementioned Hope Town.

“Songwriters In Paradise always tries to give back to the communities we are blessed to enjoy,” says Patrick, “for example, SIP alone has donated over $1 million to charities in and around Hope Town, Abaco, Bahamas.” When Category 5 Hurricane Dorian directly hit Hope Town and the surrounding islands, SIP sprang into action and performed a SOLD OUT benefit concert called “SIP Hope 4 Hope Town” at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, just two weeks after the storm. SIP Hope 4 Hope Town by SIP has raised nearly $250,000 for the battered Bahamian islands. Along with SIP NAPA, Songwriters In Paradise raised funds for the Notes Foundation, which ensures music is taught in California schools, the Boys & Girls Club of Calistoga, the St. Helena Volunteer Fire Department and others. Charitable funds are raised at each SIP via the auction of signed guitars, handwritten lyrics and other items throughout each event.
