The Story and The Song
This half-day masterclass with Meteor award winning songwriter John Spillane, brought to you by the Irish Writers Centre in association with TradFest, will get to the heart of song writing and storytelling.
Participants will examine and enjoy the Irish ballad tradition and see how a story may be told in a song and look at the magical chemical reaction that happens when words and music meet. John will focus on helping participants lose whatever inhibitions and fears they may have about writing songs while also sharing tricks of the trade on verse, chorus, repetition, and rhyme. Songwriters should be prepared to sing and embrace the joy of the process.
