Songwriting Workshop

Select album to play


This year’s Aortas Songwriting Workshop was at the end of May: three days at beautiful Redfield with some old friends and some new ones. A lot of gorgeous songs were written. I even found time to rehearse with The Straw Horses, the folk band I’ve started singing in – but more about that later. For now let’s just enjoy some pictures of people having fun with and without guitars, and look forward to next year’s workshop.

Speed-writing: pair up and write a song in half an hour. Extra points for having actually finished it.

Playing songs late into the night

The best bit of workshops – playing songs until past everyone’s bedtime.
