Email this Post Print this Post

There will be a conference for songwriters on Jan 29 thru 31 in Austin where songwriters can attend classes on just about everything that has anything to do with the business of songwriting. Some of the best songwriters in the world will be there including Rodney Crowell (who is bringing Mary Karr too!!), Allen Shamblin (I can’t make you love me if you don’t/ and 15 other number ones), Chuck Cannon ( BMI Eight-Million-Air award…Great Guitar Player),  Austin Cunningham (Ashley Judd/Dolly Parton and many more). 

You already know of: Will Sexton, Bill and Ruth Carter, Monte Warden, and too many to name right now…We have a list of instructors and folks from the industry that are attending on our website and are adding to it daily.

This conference is a place to learn about the art of songwriting from folks that make a living doing it.  It is also a place to meet some of the current participants in the industry from engineers and producers to song pluggers and publishers. There will be media and folks looking to hire sing/songwriters for house concerts or clubs as well as publishers looking for songs and entertainers. The great part about this is that it is very affordable. The cost of the whole weekend is 150 dollars for the next six days…and that includes your lunch on Sat. You must be a member of the Austin Songwriters Group.  The membership fee for the songwriters group is 50 dollars a year…less than a dollar a week.

This is a great chance to meet these folks in a small gathering and hear some great music!

We will be at the Wyndham Hotel on south IH35. Stay at the hotel if you can because we pick all night and a lot of the guest instructors pick with us.  You never know who might show up to play. This is our sixth year and it just gets better every year. 

Please pass this on to any musicians that you think might be interested in this event.

Peace and Love
