This is our final night of Culture Days, but it marks the first night of our monthly Songwriter Sunday! Every month, we will be hosting a songwriter in the round event, sometimes in conjunction with a songwriting workshop, and always with an open mic session to round out the evening.
On Sunday, October 2, we are starting the night with a one-hour songwriting workshop at 7 pm, led by the one of a kind Kathy Stochmal. Following the workshop, a songwriter-in-the-round performance will be led by Regina’s Rebecca Lascue, with additional performances by Jeans Boots, Nick Faye and Kathy Stochmal. And following their set, the stage will be opened up to any songwriters who are brave enough to take the microphone. This is a great opportunity to perform your new material and gain some experience performing as well as some feedback from other songwriters. Best of all, this event is presented free of charge as part of Culture Days! Thank you to SaskCulture for their support!
