The following is a summary of what we have coming up over the next three months at NSAI Charlotte.
As always, our meetings are held at The Well, in Pineville, NC 28134, with Susan hosting. Our meetings times are from 7:00 p.m. to approximately 9:30 p.m. They are held the second Tuesday of every month.
Tuesday, July 12th: Glenn Selby, CPCC Songwriter Professor. Glenn will be back, as asked for, to lead us in a night of extended song critiques. Please bring twenty-five copies of your lyrics for the members to follow along while you are performing.
Tuesday, August 9th: Tony Thomas, NSAI Member and Professional Songwriter. We are honored and excited to have Tony speaking to us about all things concerning being a songwriter with a publishing contract and all things concerning songwriting in Nashville today. Now is your chance to pick Tony’s very knowledgeable brain! The second half of our meeting will be member’s song critiques, so if you have a song you are working on or have finished bring twenty-five copies of your lyric sheets for the members to follow along while you are performing.
Friday August 12th: Friday night song circle and jam. The song circle and jam will be held at an intimate club house not far from The Well. Food will be provided and all you have to do is bring your instruments, a plus one, if you would like, and whatever you would like to drink (BYOB). This allows us to play with no time restraints, which gives us more time as a group to share music, stories and laughter! Mark your calendars now for this fun group event. Address and time will be sent out separately.
Tuesday, September 13th: Kick-off to Fall song circle. Summer is over and it is time to celebrate Fall with our kick-off to Fall song circle. If when we go around the circle, you would like to have your song critiqued just let us know before hand and bring copies of your lyrics for members to follow along while you perform.
As with all of our meetings, please feel free to bring family and friends. We provide snacks for free and drinks for a donation of your choosing. We hope you go home having learned something, shared some music, been heard, and feel better than when you arrived. If you’re in a group and not having fun…you’re not at a NSAI Charlotte meeting.
See you Tuesday!
