Naked Songs 2 : This Thursday at the Mansion

I'm looking forward to this gig. I'll be trying out a few new ones that look like they are destined for the new record. Hope to see some Folks out!

Here's the facebook event .



A songwriter's circle curated by Megan Hamilton. This is the second instalment of Naked Songs, and it's a stacked line up.

Doors: 7:30pm, show 8-10pm
$8 at the door (come for dinner!)

Short version: enjoy some songs, stories and *sarsaparilla early on a Thursday. The food is pretty great, too!

Detailed description: What is a song? How do you make a song?

The premise behind Naked Songs is to present the songwriter's material in it's most raw form so that you can focus on the words. Often, production values play such a key role in a song that it's easy to lose the poetry or the value of the words.

Storytelling and discourse about the writing process between the artists is encouraged, as is audience participation and questions. All 4 artists will be on stage at all times save for an intermission somewhere between the 45 minute to an hour mark. The show will last 2 hours, and each songwriter will play in turn until the show is finished.

Artists may come prepared with songs, or may decide to go with the flow and let the previous work inform what they play. New material is appreciated as are old favourites.

The second instalment has a killer line up once again:
