“Songetry” songwriting workshop with Joe Craven
Sunday, February 16, 2020
2 - 4 PM
This fun and engaging workshop will give you tools to be the songwriter you always wanted to be. Ages teen & adult.
“Songetry” connects something most of us have already done (writing a poem) to something different (writing a song). Poems can tell a story in an accessible form of metered rhythm.
EVERYONE has the ability to write such stories and that is the grist for the mill of songwriting.

Leave with a song... Your 1st or 50th!

Buy a ticket for the workshop online and you’ll be able to add 2 tickets for the price of 1 for the evening concert!
