One of the exhibit programs is a "Muse on the Waccamaw" concert at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 16 in the Edwards Recital Hall at Coastal Carolina University. The top contestants from the songwriting contest will perform in front of a panel of judges who will award a first place winner in several categories.
