Songwriters’ Circle Moves East

The Georgian Shores Songwriters’ Circle has arranged a meeting this week in Clarksburg, to allow song writers from Meaford, Thornbury and Collingwood to attend.  This group has been going for a few years now, providing feedback and encouragement to song writers of all ages and levels of competence from other song writers who also share their songs.  No audience and no pressure, each person takes a turn with a song they have written or are in the process of writing and gets the benefit of a variety of reactions.  It’s a great resource for learning and inspiration.

As David Hawkins announces:

“The Circle has been happening only once a month – in Owen Sound. Tuesday, March 13 at 7 pm, it’s back to the twice a month schedule with a new location that will be convenient for those in Meaford, Thornbury, Collingwood and points farther east. Songwriters/lyricists/poets/performers – if you’re working on new material (or old), and want to share it in a friendly, forgiving circle of local folk, join us at the Clarksburg Retreat, 788277 Grey Road 13. Here’s a map. And a summertime picture. Please spread the word to all those who might want to participate.”

Some of these meetings have asked for participants to chip in $3 to help cover costs, but there is no standard cover.  The meetings usually end around 10 pm, with everybody going home feeling inspired.
