Rhythm & Roots: Singer-Songwriters

This course shares John Belushi's tender regard for singer-songwriting of the "I gave my love a cherry" inclination.  

Hard to believe when the web and venues like Pub 56 provide the perfect soil for the imaginative, adventurous songwriting that's suddenly everywhere!

Singers, musicians, songwriters, poets, computer wizards, visual artists!

Bring your imagination and energy.  Explore new forms of expression and all the instruments, images and sounds of the world that St. Lawrence offers.  This is the moment.  Resources like these and the time to explore them, aren’t easily gathered in places that steal your soul for a farthing.

Though it’s not required for participation in the ensemble, MUS350: Composition –Songwriting (Spring ’16, 2:30-4pm, M/W) is the perfect match for optimum  benefit!  

Auditions for Singer-Songwriters, the Spring '15 Rhythm and Roots Ensemble, happen during our scheduled class time, 7-8:30 on Thursday, January 21 (first week of classes) and Tuesday, January 26 in Noble Center 001 (Launders Underground).  .

Contact Michael Farley (mfarley@stlawu.edu) for an audition time.  Come to your appointed audition time with a tune to share or an example of your work.

Our performance takes place Thursday, April 28, at 8 pm.
