Singer-Songwriter Workshop for Old Folkies
Rick Barter, Jim Vekasi
Ever wanted to write your own song? Written some and want to work with others to move to the next step? Join us in this workshop to learn from others, practice song writing, give and receive feedback, and offer support to others in the group. This will be informal, with only very basic music theory possibly involved. Bring your portable accompaniment instrument, your voice, any songs or ideas you already have, and a willingness to stretch yourself and have fun.
