The mission of the new Music Makers Exchange program is to cross cultivate audiences of performing musicians that write music, by featuring the craft of songwriting and to foster the spirit of collaboration among the artists performing. For each event, the audience experiences music from a different perspective, by learning about how the artists write, arrange and otherwise create their songs.
The debut event is free and takes place at Gallery 5 on Thursday, May 16 and features My Darling Fury and Susan Greenbaum. These songwriters will discuss their craft of songwriting, tell stories behind their songs and perform their original music. Eileen Edmonds and Marna Bales will co-host the event.
