Musical Moments from 2015 PS Creative Workshops

| January 24, 2016 | 1 Comment

2015 was monumental for Performing Songwriter’s Creative Workshops. We had 7 songwriting workshops in Nashville, with the brilliant Jonatha Brooke joining our teaching faculty of Mary Gauthier, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Gretchen Peters. Mike Reid, Gordon Kennedy, Don Henry and Sam Baker all jumped in as teaching facilitators and added their talent and beautiful kindness to the events. And we had over-the-top surprise guests who dropped in to perform and teach, including Keb’ Mo’, Pam Tillis, Christopher Cross, Indigo GirlsEmily Saliers, Travis Meadows, Kathy Mattea, a wonderful bluegrass trio, and more.

In addition to all of that, Beth taught a 3-day Vocal Presence workshop for alums at Ocean Way Studios that was beyond anything we could have imagined. And we made trips to Italy for our Tuscan retreat in May with Mary, and October with Gretchen. What a year! 2016 is shaping up to just keep adding more wonderful on top of incredible with some new events, including a trip to Scotland in May with Beth, and an alumni reunion in September.

Here’s a video I put together of some of my favorite musical moments from the seven songwriting workshops over 2015—it was so hard to choose, but I think this is a fun sampling. Enjoy!

    Very encouraging video and the idea that being called for the calling then we are truly worthy of it.
