Event description

Fred Smith presents this workshop on Writing and arranging Australian contemporary songs for students in Year 9 upwards, and adults

BOOK NOW: we will confirm your place at the workshop no later that Monday 29 May (or refund your payment if the workshop is over-booked). 

Looking at the great Australian narrative song writing tradition from Lawson to Kev Carmody to Paul Kelly, this workshop teaches students how to build songs that tell stories dealing with issues in their own communities. Uniquely Australian, this style of storytelling song writing is rarely taught and will provide students with a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from a master of this song writing form.

The workshop is limited to a maximum of 20 participants. Book now.

‘Fred Smith is simply the best folk/country musician working in this country…beyond writing some of the finest songs about Australians at war, he has created a repertoire that is wry, literate, witty, powerfully emotional and insightful.’ (Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald).

This project is proudly supported by the Australian Government through the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund, by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and through Regional Arts Victoria.
