New tenants in The Stove, Music Plus are celebrating the end of another successful year working with young people starting out in the music business with a workshop led by local traditional singer/songwriter Emily Smith. The event will take place next Wednesday (8th July) in The Stove (100 High Street) in Dumfries from 7pm until approximately 9pm. The event is free and open to all.
Scottish folksinger Emily Smith leads a workshop on her approach to songwriting. With a background in traditional song Emily will perform and demonstrate how she draws influence and inspiration for her own work from the themes and forms used in traditional song. Participants will have the opportunity to ask Emily about her approach and to try writing using templates and language used in traditional song.
