Join us on Saturday, November 4, 10:00am—2:00pm for Songs Come Apart, a workshop with renowned songwriter Ed Snodderly.
Ed will pull apart one of his songs to delve deep into the songwriting craft – looking at the ways lyrics come together, the harmony of the words used, and the way a song changes from inception to final cut. To really get the full benefit of the workshop, participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring their own works in progress, giving you the opportunity to take apart your song and put it back together with Ed’s guidance.
Workshop space is limited to 16 people so register now; the cost of the workshop is $50. If the workshop is full, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on a wait list.
Ed Snodderly is a celebrated musician and songwriter from Johnson City, Tennessee. He uses images from the old and odd Appalachian world and combines them with his own musical backbone to create inspired, original, and beautiful songs. You might think of A. P. Carter with Charles Bukowski meeting up in a diner, and them both falling in love with the same waitress talking with a hillbilly accent and a pierced tongue. Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, and others have recorded Ed’s songs, and he has recorded for Philo, Zu-Zazz, and Sugar Hill Records. The third verse of his song “The Diamond Stream,” is permanently displayed on the wall in the Hall Of Honor at the Country Music Hall Of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee. Ed teaches songwriting at East Tennessee State University in the Bluegrass, Old-Time and Country Music Program.
The workshop takes place at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum Performance Theater. To register visit: tinyurl.com/y7kz8rwv.
