A Writers’ Circle: Songwriting and Poetry

Join us April 28, 7pm, as some of the most exciting singer-songwriters in our region talk about writing song lyrics, writing poems, and when the two genres come together beautifully. The event will be conducted as a songwriters’ circle, with each artist taking a turn in the spotlight, talking about their songs, and performing.

Participants include Rose Cousins, a Juno Award-winning folk pop singer-songwriter; Owen O’Sound Lee, a musician, songwriter, and vocal arranger and the Minister of Music at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Upper Hammonds Plains; Leanne Hoffman, a singer-songwriter working on a poetry-inspired album; and River of Diamonds, a poetry-pop duo featuring poet/vocalist Michelle Elrick and producer Michael Belyea. Mi’kmaq musician and writer Raymond Sewell will be the host and also take a turn in the circle.

A Writers’ Circle: Songwriting and Poetry is a free event and will take place on Zoom webinar. Register below to receive your link to attend.
