Announcements –Steve welcomed everyone to our monthly meeting and started out by reminding everyone of our October workshop to be taught by Peter Mulvey. Peter, a highly talented singer/songwriter will be conducting a songwriting workshop titled “Constructing and De-Constructing a Song” on Oct. 10, 2015 from 2-4 p.m. at the Well in Pineville. The cost will be $20 per person. Please let Steve, Misty, Fiona or myself know if you will be attending. Peter will also be performing later that evening at The Evening Muse…tickets will go fast so make your reservations now. Great Job Steve! I covered the September 22nd “Pitch to Publisher” via skype with Emily Mueller of Ole currently being advertised on our National Web page. Sign up starts on September 14th and is only open for the first 50 folks. Mark your calendars! Additionally, I covered the 2015 NSAI Song Contest presented by CMT that is underway. You have from now until October 31st to get your song submitted. All the details, to include the prizes, are available on the NSAI home page.
Tonight’s Agenda: Tonight was our quarterly song circle aimed at recognizing the amazing talents of our members and our guests. We heard some really incredible songs. One we elevated to our “Song of the Month” featured on our Charlotte NSAI web page. Check it out! Throughout tonight’s session, you couldn’t help not only admire…but be inspired… as 13 singer/songwriters demonstrated their unique skills and craft. A truly amazing evening! I guess I would be remiss not to mention we had a celebrity attend tonight’s session. I won’t mention his name because tonight, he wasn’t the guy you see on national television, he was just one of our group…singing and playing his amazing songs! Isn’t that where it all begins….With a Song? With that….another great meeting came to close…..Til Next Time…BD
