Starting Tuesday, September 6, Song Doctor is moving to Threadgill’s North!
The weekly Song Doctor meetings will be back in full swing on Tuesday evenings from 7-10 PM at Threadgill’s North.
The Song Doctor Sessions not only give ASG members a chance to network with one another, but also serves as the weekly “bread and butter” event for ASG songwriters. Bring your songs to share, or just join in the conversation. It’s FREE, so come on out and see what all the talk is about!
The Tuesday Song Doctor Sessions is the longest running weekly event in ASG history, and, on most weeks is facilitated by ASG Executive Director, Lee Duffy with invaluable assistance from ASG board members and ASG affiliates. In the past, it has been facilitated by many of Austin’s finest songwriters, including Will Sexton, Marvin Dykhuis, David Halley and Bob Cheevers, among others. Songwriters bring in songs they are working on to share with the group and to receive constructive feedback from the Song Doctor on call for the evening, as well as the other songwriters in attendance. The feedback is intended to not only improve specific songs, but also to spotlight strategies that will enhance the crafting of songs in the future.
Over the course of one evening, the group will hear anywhere from 10-20 songs at various stages of development and each week’s discussion touches on so many aspects of songwriting that every session is like attending a master’s class in songwriting.
Everyone is welcome to attend and The Song Doctor Sessions are free. If you wish to share one of your songs, bring along about a dozen or more copies of your lyric sheets to pass around to the group. You may also bring a guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele or other instrument to accompany yourself, sing a cappella, or bring a CD to pop in the player.
Even if you do not have a song to share on a given week, you are still welcome to attend, so don’t let that stop you from getting involved.
