Chris Stuart in the Song Writer Chat Room is hosting a Song Writer Chat Room tonight (March 14) at 8 PM EST. Tonight’s guest is Chris Stuart. Chris is a songwriter, touring and recording artist, and he runs an independent record label, Backcountry Music.

He’s had five of his songs appear on the Bluegrass Unlimited chart, won the songwriting contest at Merlefest in both bluegrass and gospel categories, been selected for IBMA songwriter and band showcases, and has toured with his band Chris Stuart & Backcountry in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and the Middle East. Chris writes feature articles for Bluegrass Unlimited magazine. His songs have been recorded by Claire Lynch, Suzanne Thomas, Sally Jones, Tina Adair, and others, and he’s taught songwriting at the British Columbia Bluegrass Workshop and at festival workshops and will be teaching at the Sorefingers bluegrass school in the UK in 2007.

It should be an informative and fun chat. If you are interested in songwriting, be sure to log on at
