The 7th Annual Songwriter Workshop featuring BettySoo will be held on Saturday, March 30, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Sometimes it's hard to know what is keeping us from writing our best songs. Why do we have songs that are "almost there?" We all have songs we think we've finished, only to discover weeks or months later that we're not quite satisfied. It's easy to get frustrated and tell ourselves we're big imposters, it's not worth it, and we are never going to be any good at this. Then there are those days when even the idea of sitting down to write seems so daunting, we never even get around to doing it in the first place.
BettySoo has garnered multiple songwriting awards, including the New Folk at Kerrville, Songwriter of the Year at Big Top Chautauqua, The Dave Carter Songwriting Award at Sisters Folk Festival, and the Mountain Stage New Song Competition. Tickets are $50 per person and includes lunch and two tickets to BettySoo’s Black Box Songwriter Series concert scheduled for Sunday, March 31. Workshop is limited to 20 people.
