Working closely with Fairlight Folk, and songwriter Bruce Watson, the Folk Federation organised a three hour Songwriting Workshop on 18th September 2018.
Feed back from the group was very positive. . ( www.brucewatsonmusic.com ) They were all enthusiastic and several are already collaborating on songs.
We would like to thank Bruce and look forward to working with him again in the future. In response to feedback, we hope that we can hold one over two days at a future date. This will also accommodate those who missed out when this workshop filled up.
Thanks also to Rosie Mac Donald and Penny Rankin-Smith from Fairlight Folk for their support in the planning, promoting and hosting the event. More than half of the participants stayed on for the evening concert which featured Bruce, along with the Dixie Chooks and Westminster.
We are currently planning a variety of workshops which will be held at various locations and hope to be able to work with other folk clubs where appropriate.
