Our Programs Idaho Songwriters Association

Idaho Songwriters Association Forum

Join us in celebrating 100% original music by local performers. These concerts are free to the community and all ages are welcome. The Forum is the core of the ISA and provides a direct link between the songwriter and the community. This event is held on the last Tuesday of the month. Artists of all genres and abilities are welcome to perform with one caveat: the song you perform must be AN ORIGINAL tune. Songwriters will sign-up on the day of the forum between 5:30 – 6:30 PM. Be prepared to perform 1 original song.

Questions? Email the host, Dan Costellodan@hearcostello.com.

The series is supported by volunteers and underwritten by The Idaho Songwriters Association. Doors at 5:30pm, show 6:30-9:30pm.

Sisters in Songwriting

This concert series highlights female songwriters in Idaho. These concerts support women and their craft as they network, collaborate and celebrate each other through music. This concert series is an original idea by songwriter Brook Faulk, who produces the show in collaboration with the ISA. Each concert features three or four “sisters in songwriting”. The ladies perform their original music round-robin style with lots of conversation and perhaps a cross-over and a spontaneous harmony or two. The series is supported by volunteers and underwritten by The Idaho Songwriters Association.

Concerts at Cinder Winery

ISA  collaborates with Cinder Winery to spotlight  local original songwriters. Cinder Winery has a dedicated stage and concert space that complement their rugged urban ambience. Award-winning wine and locally-brewed beer are available for purchase. Events also offer the best of Boise’s eclectic food trucks.

This is an all ages venue.

The Bistro at the Courtyard Marriott (Eagle Rd)

ISA collaborated in 2016- 2017 with The Courtyard Marriott to spotlight performances of original music by songwriters. These concerts took place in the comfortable lounge area of the Marriott. The informal atmosphere allowed the audience and songwriter to be part of a musical conversation.


Concerts in the Sapphire Room

Boise’s premier listening room is the best kept secret between Austin and Portland. With available seating for 170 guests, a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, clear sight lines of the stage from any corner of the room, and regular performances by local and touring artists, this room is the gem of local music lovers. The Sapphire Room offers a full-service bar with small plates and appetizers menu during every performance.

The Sapphire Room is located in the newly remodeled Riverside Hotel, along the Boise River in Garden City.

Concerts at Lucky Peak State Park, Sandy Point Amphitheater

ISA has partnered with the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation to produce a series of concerts during the summer and early fall at Lucky Peak. These concerts were a mix of local and national talent. It has been a great way to celebrate both the beauty of the great outdoors and the creativity of the human spirit.
