Songwriting Workshop with musicians Jim White and Paul Fonfara

Workshop participants will learn about song structure, chord progression, and discuss how music can influence text and vice versa. After this introduction groups will explore work from the exhibition, collecting ideas for the core of a song. Using a call and response approach we will fashion a beat oriented rhythm for songs. Ultimately working toward a recorded song that reflects works and ideas of the FOLK & FABLE exhibition.
