Practical songwriting workshops with the finest songwriters. We are staying online for 2021. It worked brilliantly last year and because we're unsure about how people will feel about face-to-face workshops in August we're playing it safe.
The workshops are open to everyone... That means you!
We have confirmed Reg Meuross, Donna Maciocia, Emily Barker and Findlay Napier as the tutors for 2021.
Past tutors include Kim Richey, Emily Barker, Boo Hewerdine, Karine Polwart, Jo Mango, Carol Laula, Emma Pollock, Donna Maciocia, Louis (Admiral Fallow) Abbot, Dave "Solareye" Hook and festival director Findlay Napier.
Glasgow songwriting festival is a friendly and collaborative learning environment. We cater to all levels from "I've never written a song before" to "I've got albums out but I'm looking for inspiration and/or people to collaborate with" and everything in between.
Workshops focus on songwriting 'tools', useful skills that you can take home to improve or supplement your songwriting. Class sizes are restricted to eight participants. The classes of eight will rotate around the four tutors so everyone participating in the festival gets to work with every tutor.
Your fee includes a free ticket to the opening concert on Saturday 21st August. There will be a limited number of tickets available to non-participants so get in quick as this event always sells out.
