This will be the first of many "Gatherin's" to come, some, like this one, very informal. Bring your instruments, your voices, your poetry, your ears and lets just have fun swapping songs and stories.

Cost $30 for NSAI paid members and $35 for non members paid at the door.
Starting at 10:00 a.m., lunch will be provided.
A six-hour hands-on Songwriting workshop.

Ken Gaines will give us some introductory guidance, sharing his experience and expertise in creating melodies that are perfect for the song. Then you will get your turn. You'll choose a guiding melodic idea, then go off for a few hours to create a song. Choose to work solo or with a co-writer. Register with a partner, or ask to be paired up with someone. Bring lyrics that you've already written, or start with a blank slate. Then be ready to write a great song! At 3:00, everyone will come back together to share what you've done with the whole group. So, come prepared to perform what you've written during the day. Enrollment is limited and filling up fast — you MUST pre-register.
