Podunk Songwriting Master Seminar

Noted bluegrass songwriter Louisa Branscomb is partnering with Podunk Bluegrass Music Festival to help celebrate their having been named IBMA’s 2010 Bluegrass Event of the Year.

The festival runs August 4-7 in East Hartford, CT and Louisa will conduct a Songwriting Master Seminar on the 6th and 7th. Subtitled From Inspiration to Stage, the seminar will be a group, workshop experience designed to help songwriters with the process of refining a song, with the goal of working with an artist toward arrangement and performance.

All seminar participants will also take part in a group song composition, with input from each and all. Talk about collaboration!

Branscomb has seen her songs recorded by such stellar artists as Alison Krauss and Dale Ann Bradley, and her most recent album, I’ll Take Love, was released last month on Compass.

Registration for the Songwriting Master Seminar costs $25 in addition to the festival admission charge. It will run from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the 6th, and from 10:00 to noon on the 7th – followed by a performance of the group song on the main stage by Donna Ulisse during her set.

Space is quite limited; only 15 registrations will be taken. Contact Podunk to sign up.
