I was performing in Memphis at the Memphis Folk Alliance last year and one of the highlights for me was to witness something called a songwriter circle hosted by Blue Rock studios from Texas. It was really well hosted and it felt like such a natural way to hear new songs and get an introduction to some new artists. I was so happy when we returned to Canada to find that one of my friends at Tribehouse took the initiative to get a songwriter circle going in our town. It has been running for about 8 months now and each month we have four different artists sharing their stories and songs. Usually there is a mixture of more established artists and new comers too. Its a safe environment for everyone to try new songs out and gauge how an audience responds to the music.
Tonight I will be performing there again along with Gary Norris, Bethany Petch and Hayden Ward. It should be a blast. If you are in Kelowna please come out and support the event. 7pm streaming cafe, Kelowna BC
