Songwriting Workshop with Jim Colbert
3:00 pm; The Attic, State Theatre
Have you always wanted to write a song, and didn’t know how to start? Join award-winning songwriter Jim Colbert (and maybe a special guest or two) for tips on jump starting your creativity, turning poems into songs, and finding your muse. Bring a pen, paper and an instrument if you like. We’ll provide handouts, work through some exercises together and get your songwriting motor running! The tips and techniques we’ll share are applicable to all genres. Bring a song if you want advice, or just to share!
Bellefonte singer/songwriter Jim Colbert has won the Pennsylvania Heritage Songwriting and Susquehanna Folk Music Society Songwriting competitions and has performed at festivals, coffeehouses and venues from New England to Texas. He is a board member of Acoustic Brew Concert Series, a DJ for WPSU-FM, and is a fixture in the Central Pennsylvania folk music scene.
