Workshop: Calling All Songwriters!
Sat, April 22, 2017, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT
Calling all songwriters! Join me in this fun, creative workshop that will run the entire gamut of songwriting. Ways to find inspiration, crafting a song, connecting the verse to the chorus, how to find a strong hook and challenging yourself to come up with different melodies. Participants are encouraged to bring a song they are working on and plan to receive helpful feedback from a music row professional. I will also include 12 guitar rhythms every songwriter should know and show how partial capos can serve as alternatives to alternate tunings. Come further yourself on the journey to becoming the best songwriter you can be.
With Sally Barris.
Sally Barris is an A-list Nashville songwriter who has had songs covered by such top-level artists as Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride, and Lee Ann Womack. Her song “Let The Wind Chase You,” recorded by Trisha Yearwood and Keith Urban, received a Grammy nomination for vocal collaboration in 2009.While her writing credits mightily impress, fans and peers are most captivated by her bright spirit and expressive mountain soprano. Dirty Linen says “Barris knows how to write lyrics that are as forthright as a stream of clear water and how to support them with melodies that share that quality.” Sally also performs with dobro player and guitarist Chas Williams and mandolin player Jason Bailey as "Sally Barris & The Birmingham Boys." The Minnesota native has performed Mountain Stage, New Bedford Summer Fest, Wildflower Arts & Music Festival and The Kerrville Folk Festival. Sally is currently touring with her new CD “The Road in Me.” Find her on the web at sallybarris.com.
